Doesn't this thing have a bunch of glued holds?

Looks cool. Don't half the routes at Sky Bridge have reinforced holds?

actually got back on this thing today. Still pretty damn hard. I think it'll go if someone would just give it a couple days. I replace the first three draws today, the crux is from the 3rd to 4th bolt.

In the spirit of raising funds for the PMRP I'll give anyone who can flash this thing $100 and the PMRP $100.

Killer route, only in the Red would this line never get climbed. Showstopper moves, bring lots of toe rubber.

Gave this a try over Cranksgiving 2K16. Done a lot of slab climbing at Jackson Falls so it called out to me. Would be such a classic at a smaller place, but everyone at Gold Coast just wants to climb the steeps.
