Really fun route with a crux right after clipping first bolt (somewhat difficult clip at second bolt). Seems like an aweful long ways to the third bolt but the climb is a tad bit easier going here. Move toward the huge hueco at the top and pull the really fun bulge to finish out; really fun route!!
This is the last route on the left wall (East FAcing) in the upper section of the Black Corridor, can't miss it!
5 Bolts will have you seeing the chains on top for your rappel.

Assuming this route is the one I think it is, a bolt near the top (4th?) is missing a hanger and leads to a long scary run-out (although, on 9ish terrain).

Scary up top from what I remember. Seemed like far falls were going to be the norm if it came to that.

Bolt in hueco still missing a hanger. If solid at the grade it's not a big deal, almost makes you feel like you're not sport climbing in the corridor for a minute. Wonderful route, a must-do.

Fantastic route. Ideal warm up. Felt it was well bolted. A reachy crux down low leads to easy, incredibly fun climbing through Huecos. Soft for grade.
