On 12/7/10, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced the last bolt on this route along with the shared anchor. All bolts are 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece. The anchor is equipped with quicklinks and rap rings.

The description for the 11a (left start) is miss leading. First clip is a little sketchy if you less than 6 foot. There are finger busting crimps for the first two bolts. Then you are at a lovely jug way right of the third bolt that is a parilous reach back to the left. Once the third bolt is clipped the climb is mellow. First three bolts are way harder than Yaak Crack. Not a good fall at nearing the third bolt. I know I made it twice.

Its a good idea to clip the 3rd bolt off the crimps to avoid the scary fall- which is safe if you have the bolt clipped.
