unknown sport route

A 7+ bolt sport route heads up one of the ribs on this steep, eye catching wall on the south side of Garden Creek Gap. There is one bolt visible (though it looks merely like a white speck) in the the slanting right facing corner with the shadow. Just above this feature is a slightly overhanging brownish patch that has a bolt with a bail biner on it (I can't see it in the photo). I could not manage the moves and thus became at least the second person to bail on the climb here. There are 5 more bolts above and, out of sight, a 2 bolt top anchor that can be found by scrambling up above the four bolt slab climb. Probably the climb is too high for one rope, though I didn't check. With more time, I'll go back and top rope the climb, if I can.

Lots of lichen?

This is the south side with so much lichen? Phew!
