in a word, incredible. i hung some standard draws on the first bolt and last 4 bolts so this whole thing is hung up. get on it! easily one of the best climbs in the gorge...an instant classic. think midnight surf but way, way more interesting. thanks again dustin!!

Glad you liked it! Andrew really spotted the line, I just poked some holes in it.

well thanks to both of ya then. i mixed the last two draws up; the one on the last bolt should be on the second to last bolt and vice versa. it probably doesn't matter all that much but having a short draw at the leftward traverse section before the ramp kinda pulls the rope line a little to the left.

That is too bad...I really like the bottom of the route. O well. Getting to the first bolt is one of the nicest boulder problems I have been on at the Red. Then it gradually turns to shit.

awesome route, but is it safe to fall between the second to last and last bolt?

Fantastic, but this route does not fuck around. Bring your A game. (or better yet your c/d game)
