Four bolts protect this route which is located between Old Number Eight and Skin to Win. The climbing is fairly continuous on small holds between the bolts. The route name comes from my age and the temperature on the day of the first ascent.


Four bolts.

this route is protected by three bolts and the anchors up top. keep your cool going to the first bolt as a fall before would be ugly. other than that it is well protected. very fun route.
