|Hit and Run Area
The flake on the arete (left) sounds a bit hollow so I would not advice placing any pro there. That being said there is one maybe two placements before the bolt. Be careful. Once you pull the bulge the crack opens up a bit, from fingers to loose hands (not big enough for fists though... Unless you have small hands). Crank on fun knobs to the top.
From the Party Ledge head to the right and climb the obvious corner with one bolt just above the bulge. I set up a top rope as the route I really wanted to do Hit & Run was soaking wet. To setup a TR, it was a short scramble up the backside and one scary move to gain access to the top.
The approach to the Hit & Run area is a bushwack, someone needs to go up there with a machete and cut back the brush from the trail.
There is one bolt 1/3 of the way up. The rest is Camalot #.25 to #1. Sling knobs on the last 3rd of the climb. There are two trees at the top for anchors.

We opted to approach by canoe, a fun option and we dodged the majority of the crowds on the trail.

This description is totally wrong! There is no corner and I soloed the FA, Why would I place a bolt?
