Crazy ass Kurt Albert put up another super hard route and rated it 7+ and put a couple bolts in and called it good. 3 bolts and a sling in 25m isn't what I would call good. You'd have to be crazy, insanely good, or stupid to lead this route, though it's possible. The crux is getting to the first bolt which is separated from you on the ground by about 25ft. of 5.11 technical climbing. You reach a shield-like block and then stand up on it to clip. From there it's technical climbing to the 2nd bolt, then easier climbing to the sling, then interesting climbing on pockets which are positive in all the wrong directions. Actually a pretty fun route!
From the label, go up and then cross leftwards over the "shield" to the first bolt, then straight up
3 bolts, 1 sling, pigtail anchor
