bouldery start, and the rock quality improves as you go higher.

Kipp, I'd like a beta map from you proving it is possible to climb this route without using draws as holds and making your belayer sit on the rope.

I am the FA..in the FA rule book, it says I was allowed to use draws as handholds, hangers as footholds, and belayer tension to ascend. I got to the top, took my glory as the FA, and moved on...possible to climb clean? how in the world would I know??????

lol, I love it. After that route, I told Paul that I wanted to start a thread titled, "Dear Kipp, how many of your FAs have you done clean?" You know I've got nothing but love for you, man. ;)
