This goes as a sport line. I placed one nut under the first bolt for the hell of it, but it felt well protected after that. There is a crucial, hidden final bolt as you pull the roof that really helps to lower your heart rate!

I did the FA of 'Tang' back in about 1993. Not sure how to get this info into the route info, so I added it as a comment. It is a great route.
