Description 

This is the only sport climb there. The start is a little tricky, but it is well protected. This shares anchors with Leprechaun.

Location 

As you approach the buttress, it is the first climb. Look for bolts behind a large boulder.

Protection 

6 quickdraws.

Cool route on good rock and a good line to end the day on when you have no more skin left on the back of your hands. I did not find the start to hard but had to think a little on the upper half where the holds vanished. Might be a little tricky at the grade.

The crux seemed to be believing that you won't break the holds that you are pulling on. Pretty fun climbing and a good addition of variety in terms of the type of climbing. Every bolt on this route, including the anchors had zero or less than zero threads projecting through the nuts. Poor quality bolt installation.

Has anyone climbed this route recently and know the condition of the bolts?

When I did the route last spring, the actual bolts themselves didn't look that bad, that I can remember. Unfortunately the bolts were tapped too deeply into the hole, which didn't leave enough thread exposed to properly install the nut.

Considerably harder if you are shorter. Other than being runout in areas and sometimes thru cruxy sections, the bolts are fine, bomber.
