As of 9/17/12 the fixed draws on this route are pretty manky. I replaced the long draw at the start of the roof and the one below that but the first 2 draws and last 2 in the roof still need an upgrade.
The bolts are a bit rusty as well.

|As of 6/9/13, all permadraws and bolts looked brand spankin' new; the facelift must have occurred within the past few months.|

|Yesterday, I almost broke off a crimp with clipping slack out for the 3rd bolt. This would have been a ground fall from 20+ feet and bad news. I had used the crimp in sessions before, but we broke it off the wall this time and placed it at the bottom of the cliff. The move still goes fine, its just a gaston now, and I would advise clipping from the large holds below. Use a bit of caution on the bottom half with crimps, but the top half is 100% bomber rock.|
