There is no belay bolt per se. The leader clips the first two bolts before leaving the starting ledge. Most belayers belay from the ground.

Short but super fun, recommend it. With a good belayer doesn't really matter if you start from the ledge or the ground unless you think you might blow the third clip and get rubbed by the rope a bit on the way down.

freaking fun route!!!!! I sent it like 5 try and it was pure heaven! certaintly coming back to climb it some time! we had the belayer belay on the ground, I skipped the 4th bolt and clipped the 5th, this is way easier and just as safe... very fun!
