Love the climb. Not sure where you'd need a double knee bar though.... I guess you could in the big crack right below the last two bolts, but you certainly don't NEED too. This route, it seems, has been bolted since this was posted. 7 bolts to anchors. Crimpy start for sure, then a good haul. The addition of all that pro might take the grade down a notch, but I did top rope it.... Make sure to look around at the top! Great views!
