New bolts, I am probably going to get them chopped. I did not put them in. No crux. Great first lead for Platte friction.


Very left side of rock.


Two bolts with chains. Second pitch goes 5.10a/b for one move getting over black streak and is very well protected. Chains at top of second pitch.

I believe Tin Can Alley takes the crack/flake system to the small tree in your photo (possible belay)- then goes left then back right past a couple old bolts to the newish anchor. There are a couple of 10ish face routes w/ new bolts to the right (incl the black streak mentioned).

Looking at my book, you are right. A new bolted route does exist. It starts out low and easy to the first set of chains. The second pitch goes up th black streak which I agree is around 10a. The crux is pulling over the top. The crux is very well-protected.
