Yos Sport guide says 80', 6 bolts, iirc, but actually only 4 bolts and closer to 60' in my estimation.

You're thinking of Suds. Went up there Saturday to get the cobwebs off and found the nut on the left anchor loose. Didn't have a wrench, but I hand tightened it.

Fun to warm up on, but it seems to end before it begins, it's really short. The rating is very soft for Yosemite Valley, so hop on it before it gets down graded! But for a sport route I'd guess the 5.9 is probably right. Today, 3/7/04, Gary noticed one of the nuts on the belay/rap station at the top was loose. We didn't have a wrench to tighten it... whoever sees this and goes up there next might take one (could be us too).

I climbed this route a couple of months ago and was surprised as hell. I was expecting some challenging 5.9 crux and it never came. This route throws the whole sandbagging idea on its head. Most people would think twice about calling it 5.8, it's that easy. But I'll stick with the 5.9 rating. I need all the credit I can get.
