The route author (Pat Brennan) added a bolt (2011) to protect from a ground fall before doing the intial move up and left.

Very sustained excellent route on good quality rock. I used a two alpine draws fully extended and a 20 ft cordilette and anchored off of black bart's anchors for a TR setup for followers.
