28m. A good but unnerving pitch with no substantial protection before the peg runner. Pull up and left to large hollow sounding holds then press on to reach a high peg move past this with difficulty to reach an old copperhead runner then move left and up to the traverse ledge and lower-off.

I Climbed it a few years ago without the bolt, was scary and serious. I think it used to be E4 before, i`d say it`s probably E5. Would be better with a bolt or two at around 6c+

Does anyone have any objections to me putting some bolts in this route?

Now has a few extra bolts, the crux is still done with the peg for protection. Probably just 6b+ and quite good. Some of the flakes may fall off on the lower bit over time, if the bolts don`t get removed, would like the hangers back if they do please.

The extra bolts have regenerated this climb, its now a very nice 6c and worth two stars
