Great climb. Absolutely loved it. A great route for climbers in the mood to just climb instead of puzzling over tricky sequences. Well-bolted with big holds on beautiful rock. Highly recommended.

Just plain fun. Need to pay attention in a tricky thin section. Otherwise, nice and juggy.

Many thanks to Tom and Ines Truesdale for their help in cleaning this route when it was being put up.

If you're trying to improve technique, give this route a go. Just watch out getting lowered that you don't get a tree up your bum.

The bum tree has been removed.

Solid RRG-style climb, easier than Plate Tectonics I thought

Feels like solid 10a. Definitely harder then PT- except for the start. GLIK requires a bit of thinking not needed on PT. Still pretty much a jug haul by most standards.

fun line

SUCH a great route, I love getting on it every time I climb at the Red.

Fun climb. I found this only slightly harder then Plate Tectonics right next door. And... it had an easier start which was nice.

bland sport climb, jug haul, stays dry in the pouring rain. fun for something to do on a rainy day.

Simple and fantastic. A++

similar in difficulty to PT, slightly more enjoyable to me though. cool sidepulls!
