This thing is really fun-- weird pinchy holds and such.
Paul3eb said on May 24th, 2005
surprising and really fun. if you like pinches, this is your route. packs a lot into 50ft.

I ripped off the crux hold on this one. It's definately much harder now.
Horatio Felacio said on July 25th, 2005
i just did this today and thought it was still .11c at most.

I dont really remeber there being much of a crux. I know I loved clipping the last bolt before the anchors on that bomber hand jam.

hand jam? haha

theres a horizontal right inbetween the first and second bolt. good route.

Great climb, reminicent of Government Cheese at Military wall. Too bad it's not the entire height of the wall. 11c.

Very good. Knee jam in the crack was a life saver!!

this route is crazy...crazy sweet.
Brentucky said on August 17th, 2008
there's definitely a crux if you don't hand jam
Myke Dronez said on November 3rd, 2008
Maybe call the jam off for grade integrity? I suck at pulling juggas and felt 11a. Easy sport points!

really unique. lot of fun.

Hand or fist jam, I clipped from it. and rested on it. Nice route!

Good, but not great IMO. Just not enough to it.

A note about rain: We were able to get on this even in quite a bit of rain, but the belay stance is terrible with running water in the trench at the base of the cliff and lots of mud on the steep bank beside. Look elsewhere if you're trying to stay dry.

Way underrated route. not your typical RRG line.
