Great route with good pockets. All over hanging

New Access Difficulties MORE INFO >>>

Description 

An overhanging pocket route, much like the rest of Malibu. Mostly good pockets with a small crux sequence. The bolts are out left a bit, to keep you from hitting the large boulder below you.

Location 

Straight up the middle of the face.

Protection 

Four bolts. The anchor is two open shuts, but the bolt is sticking out a bit to far to thread one of the shuts.

Was out there today and both top anchors are pulling out.
I would be very aware of this before climbing again.

If anyone knows who the FA is I would be happy to rebolt this if you have contact info? (was it Oliphant?)

Well looks like some "nice" person has chipped/enlarged two of the holds in the crux section to make it easier. Can't believe anyone would do this on a climb at this level. Probably 10c now if that.

I haven't climbed the route for a long time and I took a spin this past weekend, it felt a bit easier, and it would be a bummer if someone chipped a hold. I didn't notice....
