70s  Sucess!

We did this route using trad gear after bailing out on a Rainier attempt. I don't remember the details because we did around 8 routes that day.

Run Out

The first bolt as of today is very sketchy & loose. The second bolt was very strong (tested heavily). I could not get myself to the 3rd bolt as a mistake would have been about 20 ft with significant pendulum. Given the angle of the rock i felt for sure it would have meant injury. Because the route pushes left so far without protection, I would not recommend this climb. The sad part is, with 1 new bolt placed nicely between the current 2nd & 3rd bolts this climb looks amazing. Failed attempt at this route. Rappeled rescue style after a scary down climb & short fall to the 2nd bolt.
