Is it Rattle Can, or Rattle Can Bob?

I kinda like Rattle Can Bob - for some reason it's making me think of Sideshow Bob

Went to Lost Ledge today with the Perez's. We climbed Rattle Can, among others. I led it an thought it was a nice addition. It's pretty clean and the bolts are spaced appropriately for the area. I like the climbing and agree that it's 5.7, albeit probably not for someone who is barely a 5.7 leader. However, most of the routes on the main slab are in that category.

A huge thanks to the boys for replacing all those old bolts. I feel a LOT more comfortable climbing those routes with modern hardware. I plan on heading back out there I. The fall. It's a nice place on a nice day. PS when you're at the top of any of the routes, check out the view of Sundown across the valley. It's special.

agreed Al, I got out there on friday and climbed Rattle Can as well! a nice addition to the area with well placed bolts! Thanks for updating the hardware on the other routes as well. I'm glad people are stepping up and replacing old bolts, it makes the climbing enjoyable again like the FA parties got to experience!
