    Super fun route! Definitely worth combining pitches as on SP description, but do P6 & P9 alone to maximize belay ledge use. A few bolts are at most 1m off, but a long reach with alpine draw is doable always. Just gotta keep that routefinding head on, not just mindlessly follow bolts feeling for holds. I led both P4 & P8, personally found P8 harder than P4 but seems some found other way around. Was a well-varied route, but consistent slabby feet so be prepared to smear! P12 & P13 were scrambly and loose, more like 5.6 IMO. Be careful not to knock stuff down here! This route is getting more and more popular, so good chance someone beneath might feel your wrath. Also note, tops out right at top of hiking trail so expect to yell at a tourist or 2 for kicking rocks down on you. Took us 9 hrs bottom-to-top with 10c & 10d slab taking the lion's share of the time, so if you're good on bow valley slab would go much quicker.

    Heard the bolting was bad but I didn’t see the issue all the hard climbing was well protected

    Squamish start so Milos and I climbed the last 6 pitches in the dark. Climbing was great and sustained, bolting is bad.
