Great route to test out your friction climbing. 5.8 climbing though the first four bolts will bring you to the crux and the fifth bolt. A few friction moves and you begin the runout to the finish. Bring some gear if you're not comfortable after the last bolt. It's around thirty feet to the top.
This route is twenty feet to the right of Three Amigos. It is the first bolted route you will find when descending the climbers' trail. GPS 33850 13838.
Five bolts and some pro. There are no fixed anchors so just sling a tree.
just past the 2nd bolt. some really fun friction c...

I didn't see five bolts on this route, although that is what this and the PATC guide say. There were enough, at least at the crux. The difficulty varies a lot below the crux if you move a few feet to the right or left.

I agree. The "hard parts" can be circumvented pretty easily. If you follow the bolt line directly (I didn't see 5 bolts either) it's defintely 5.9 with the thinnest moves IMO between the 1st and 2nd bolts. Eases up significantly after that.

Did this route over the weekend, it looks as if it is down to 3 bolts. The empty bolt hole for what should have been the 3rd bolt is fairly obvious, distance between the last two bolts isn't bad, definitely a bit of a runout to the top though.
