There are rap slings on the 2nd last bolt before the anchors on P2 of the original route, so that you don't need to make the traverse on the tiny ledge at the end if you're scared.

Could not spot the new bolts/anchors that continue straight up from the ledge as are indicated in the topo.

You can make one rap to the ground from the anchor at the end of P2 with two 60m ropes.

Two descriptions of P1 - Grease Fest and Sand Bag. Pick one.

Bring a micro nut to pro the starting move (we didn't have one). Otherwise a few aliens, and a few hands size pieces will get you up.

90% of the moves are 5.10b I guess, I found it daunting just to follow. I was scared for my friend as he lead the hard to protect first pitch and some of his pieces popped out. The second sport pitch is a study in smear faith and sequence reading. After climbing this your footwork will be light years better. We finished on the route out to the right about 25'. This meant a scary horizontal traverse for the follower as the first couple of moves are faithy and falling would mean a pendulum swing across a near vertical slab. I have some great pictures I'll try to submit if I can figure out how.

The final traverse seemed like quite a ways between bolts. 15-20 feet between the 2 traversing bolts to the anchors. Kind of inconsistent with how well most of the rest of the pitch is bolted.

There was nothing special about this route.

And it is the worst sandbag I have ever climbed. 10a first pitch? Give me a break. Get real.

We didn't even do the 2nd pitch because we figured it was more of the same BULLSH*T.
