This route takes on the next line of bolts right of Irreverent C and flows through fun movement sandwiched by tough sections. Should clean up in time to meet its predicted 3 stars so give it some love and carry a brush.

Those cams holding the rope up there are starting to look like BOOTY. The booty hawk is about to snatch that shit.

Is this still a closed project? Is it the one with the blue ribbon and petzl draws on it? I accidentally climbed on it, thinking it was the "unknown 13a" in the book.

I think that's Bentley's project.

Oh I know Bentley, how do I get in touch with him?

last time I was at the cliff there was a line directly right of Irreverent C that didn't look so good with just a rope and not fully bolted and then closer to Pile Driver was a very long line that looked much better, fully bolted with a blue tag on the bottom. I wonder if this second line closer to Pile Driver is what Bentley sent as opposed to the other one. If so it also appears to be longer than 90 feet and it appeared to have at least fourteen bolts?

status update on this route anyone?

Shannon has opened it. Just like all the routes at Shady in the beginning, it needs more cleaning. Everyday we were on the PMRP, she would go up get the route more user friendly.There is going to be hold breakage and brushing needed for awhile. Once it cleans up, it will be fantastic. Enjoy the start!
dustonian said on June 8th, 2010
Awesome, thank you guys for the hard work and gear! Similar in difficulty to False Idol & FFG?
One-Fall said on June 8th, 2010
I feel it is much harder than Far From God. For me, ITNH has the hardest start on the wall. But only one path has been found to the chains so far, and Im sure, just like all the other climbs at Shady, easier ways will be found.
dustonian said on June 8th, 2010
Cool, we'll get on it and do our part. Had a nice cleaning and sending sesh on False Idol yesterday...
Shannon said on June 8th, 2010
As Lee said, "Enjoy the start!" Once you get past the bouldery start it has a nice flow around the same difficulty as FFG, climbs a little more like the upper (better) section of Irreverant C with a cool finish. Might need one more long draw. Lee is right, I whacked a ton of sharp edges and loose rock off but it will take a while for it to "clean up." Definitely STICK CLIP the first bolt! Have fun:)

Seriously, only ONE person has a logged send for this? Any reason why people don't get on this?
dustonian said on October 1st, 2013
Needs to be cleaned
climb2core said on October 1st, 2013
I should just move the PD's from FFG over to it. It would clean up in no time ;)
dustonian said on October 1st, 2013
This one actually has a line of aluminum junk. It just doesn't look super appealing from the ground unfort... no doubt it would be a good route with a little more tlc

In previous guidebook editions it was listed as a project, so that kept a lot of folks off for a while. Then after opening it up, the word of the street was it had a wicked hard boulder problem off the ground that acted like a nerd gate and discouraged more than a few. I have gone over the route cleaning as much lose and sharp stuff as possible and it could use some more. It's not really any sharper than the whole wall was when we first started. I have left a set of decent proj draws on since opening just to encourage traffic...sorry Dustin, I know I have violated the law of mank:) I have even left obvious tick marks and splotched big chalk prints on it in the past, all to no avail. A top rope can be set up on it from Irreverent C, if one is so incline. It's not as bad as it looks, in fact I was surprised how well it turned out, over all. Thanks for asking...if you get on, let me know how it goes!
dustonian said on October 2nd, 2013
You must be confusing me with Super Safe Ian ;) I'll get on this one sometime soon and even take brush up for the ride, thanks for the work Shannon!

Thanks SSS. Is the the start that hard? If it is much above V5, it could very well be a nerd gate for me too! I imagine that the biners are in good shape but the nylon dogbones might need replacing after 3 years outside. Super safe Ian would probably just make a couple of those cleaning biners and and pull the rest. If/when I get on it, I can get the rest back to you. Thanks for putting time into the line. Ian

"nerd gate" has to be the dumbest climbing term....ever.
Shannon said on October 2nd, 2013
Thanks Dustin! Thanks Ian! Yay, pull whatever and just give me what you take down. Look forward to hearing how it goes :) And just for people like you Kipp...for whom all kinds of trivial and unexpected things seem to motivate you to comment on...nerd gate!
