Description 

I gave this route the 5.8+ rating because the beginning (if you avoid the right crack holds) is the crux of the route...the rest is straightforward pocket pulling.

Protection 

9 bolts, so 9 draws.

The bolting is terrible for the follower - looking at a pendulum into the slope to the right if you fall early (THE CRUX).

I give this route 1 star, a re-bolt might deserve a second one.

The whole climb as a sum is kind of Meh, with a few unique features that off-set the obvious rap-bolted Mehs
