Sandpile. Would have been a good route, but holds crumbled with each move.

This route doesn't look like it gets as much traffic as some others on this wall, but I thought it was as good. Nothing crumbled, so maybe it has cleaned up.

Just as fun as the tens to the right, it should def get more traffic.

Pretty fun. I like the transition from pump to slab at the top. I thought the slab part was harder.

Fun movement. Not 4-star, but definitely worth doing.

Bad anchors/flexing anchor bolts! The last bolt going to the anchors also flexes. Felt very nervous to lower off of the anchors to clean. I would highly recommend waiting for the glue-ins on this route. 11.12.19

Call a certified rebolter for the anchor. So scary

Didn't notice anything wrong with the anchors other than they need chains. Rope twister.

Agree with DrRockso. Climbed it last weekend, anchors are fine, might need chains.
