Well bolted. Not PG13.

Great route. The bolting job during the climb is great, but the anchor is totally jingus. I'm a big fan of fat clip-and-go tow hooks (i.e. mussy hooks), but the rigs on this route are attached to the janky homemade hangers with small little pins. I just shook my head when I clipped these things...if I still lived in CA I would swap them out myself.

We added a bolt so this route is no longer PG13. Change out the top anchor if you wish

J. Albers: If the mussy hooks at the top are a problem. Some of the times when these were used the 1/4 inch pins were inserted upside down. If the head of the pin is facing the rock there is no way the pin can come out cause it will be held in by the rock, even if the small cotter key came out. Turn this pin around if you want (if it was placed wrong) or replace the whole thing is you want.
