I don't know why this route is listed as trad; the only runout section is pretty easy. Further spacing between bolts over easier climbing is typical of routes at Crowders.

Fun route nevertheless. FYI, this route is easier if you are tall.

you could certainly get a peice of gear in between the first and second bolts. It is easy but a fall would be bad for your health. good route.

The initial replacement of the top anchor has been corrected. The new (new) anchor was moved back to its original site. Stainless steel glue-ins were used.
