Description 

Beta pic is outdated as this route is fully bolted now

P1 is about 65 feet, first twenty are the hardest, maybe 5.7 or 5.8?
Three bolts in the bottom half to protect you to the water grooves above, three more bolts to the anchors which are fixed with welded rings.

P2 80 feet 5 bolts.
This pitch is about 5.5(?)

P3 Just thirty feet of 5.3 to the last set of anchors. passing one bolt about 15 feet up

The route can be lead climbed and rapped on a single 60 meter rope but its close so tie safety nots and don't fall off the end of the rope.

Fun route that was in the original guide book and was protected with Pitons and some gear placements before but has been bolted completely now.

Protection 

Easy and fun multipitch sport route has some bolts on it so all you need is about 6 draws and a couple slings to make your belay anchors. If your totally new at leading the bolts might seem pretty far apart, especially on pitch 2 which is like 80 feet and 5 bolts, but easy climbing.
