BETA PHOTO: Most of "The Thornbirds" at Church Dome

Description 

Route follows a line of bolts just to the right of the crack that splits the east face of Rock of Ages.

I haven't climbed this route, but wanted to add the topo to show the nature of the rock. The line in the photo just follows the bolts which can clearly be seen. Info from Moser's 1992 Guide

Location 

Just right of the major crack in the east face

Protection 

Bolts. Doesn't look like there's fixed anchor gear
