Be careful on this thing Air Canada and I collectively broke off three holds around the second bolt this past weekend. This thing is pretty dirty may take a while for this climb to evolve into a decent route.

I can't believe Paul hasn't commented yet on how much he adored this route. I'll take this opportunity to do it for him.

Pretty nice route. The rock is reasonably solid, only a small foot chip broke and I didn't even notice it. Lots of pockets, tough to onsight w/o chalk but its all there. The roof at the last bolt makes for a nice mantel/topout move on neat baby head holds. its worth getting on.

Watch out for pine needles when pulling the roof. Really fun route.
