Has this route changed from the original route? Found two bolts up a slab to the left of Diamond Cutter, but then it traversed out left to another two bolts and face climbing to a single hanger with a link. Fun, but different than the description.

A perfect 5.9. First bolt is high, but holds are positive. Crux is between the 3rd and 4th bolt, and there are a few different approaches to make the clip.

Any beta on continuing on to climb either Arete Butler or Carpet Bagger? Above the anchors for Mammy, there is about 30-40 feet of juggy scrambling to what may be the next belay ledge to start either of the upper climbs. Where is the best belay ledge for the upper climbs, directly above Mammy's anchors, or up farther past the juggy scrambling?

Climbed Arete Butler this weekend. 2-bolt belay ledge above loose juggy rock for Arete Butler.

Am I right in saying that this route is just left of the big crack by the tree? I was just there this weekend and the Chatt Steel guidebook left me a little confused here at the time.
