Fun climb, but don't blow the second clip. Could ...


A tough couple moves off the ground and some getting to the last bolt. Might want to stick clip the second bolt because the first won't be enough to keep you off the slab below.


Just left of the small chimney, this route goes up a face.


8-ish bolts to bolted anchors

FA Chris Barnes and route name is "No Climb for Old Men". Also it is left of the "North Face" route, not right of "Attitudes and Hairstyles". And as of earlier in the year (2015), there is a second pitch that works it way up and right then finishes on the right side of a prominent pillar, 5.7. Not particularly great second pitch except the view might make it worth it. Chain anchors at the top of the second pitch allows you to get down to the first pitch anchors on "No Climb for Old Men"
