Th lower off thing which I've not seen before is broken and absolutely not usable as of june 20th 2012. It isn't even fixed to a bolt so you can't lower off that instead. 1 bolt above is all there is.

Very peculiar climb. It's an easy scramble with bolts every six inches (really unncessarily close together). At the top's the crux. Bridging and laybacking don't seem to work, leaving a bit of a desperate scrabble.
