Best of the grade I have done in a long time! 5 stars

Maybe the longest 5.11 jughaul in the Red! Surprisingly mellow despite its long intimidating appearance. A few longer draws in the middle section help reduce drag... full 60m rope required

A 60m just barely gets you back down from the anchors. Great line.

Excellent line. When ever you need it, it will be there.

Be aware of the potential for a hard swing if you fall on the run out going for the chains. A friend of mine busted up his foot the other day with a rock solid belayer catching him. Had to have been from rope drag. A few longer draws around the roof or another bolt up top wouldn't be a bad idea on this route, especially since it's destined to be so popular .

If we hang on, then we really don't need any of the bolts...better chop it except the chains.

Really like this route, and don't mean to be a dick with this comment, but bolt #3 or 4... The one before the roof looks a little suspect in where it's placed. It reminds me of the exact same placement of a bolt that blew on Russ. It was ugly but he lived. Actually the rock blew.... This bolt may take a lot of falls and it might be better if it were moved up and maybe a bit of chain added so that its in more solid rock. As it is, it's just above a little mini roof like thing.

If you go to Fruit Wall, and don't climb this, you made a bad life choice. The roof is fantastic.

Favorite 11C/D in the Gorge and one of the best Sub 12 routes in the Red.

Super fun! Everyone needs to climb routes like this once in a while, to reset their internal meter of what a "5-star route" really feels like. I'm usually the runout chicken, but considering how good a rest there is at the last bolt before the anchors, and how great the holds are, I cannot see how someone would make it past the roof at the start, and then have any difficulty going to the chains.

The most excitement u can have tied up w a rope without having to pay someone.

next-to-last bolt needs to be tightened down or better yet, replaced if anyone's in the mood

Second to last bolt is loose in the hole. I could move it up and down with my hands.
