This is one of the best lines I've done in a long time. Very technical with a nice runout up high.

Another great Terry Kindred route. Too much fun...

Ray, nice route description. You should write a guide book!
Yasmeen said on May 24th, 2005
Definitely a cool route-- and yes, heady up top.
Paul3eb said on May 24th, 2005
this route grew on me as i was on it.. the top was a lot of fun! great for your route reading skills. two things: stick clip and went out of the sun at about 1pm.

Terry, this is awesome line. Quality moves all the way!
Wes said on September 12th, 2005
Beautiful and sustantained at the grade.
Wes said on September 23rd, 2005
Terry added a bolt, so there is no more runout.
Sunshine said on September 26th, 2005
Yea, after I thought Wes was going to die!
pawilkes said on October 21st, 2005
man terry, another bolt? being scared out of my mind was the greatest part of the climb. my belayer would appreciate it though, she was worried cause she saw me freaking out up there cause i thought i was going to whip
Yasmeen said on December 14th, 2005
Nice-- knowing there's another bolt, I'll probably get on this route again, whereas without the extra bolt it was one of those do it once and not attempt a repeat routes.

great googly-moogly
Sco Bro said on July 17th, 2007
That smooth arête, the long reach to the good hold, I am soooo happy that the new bolt was there. I'd like to buy that bolt a drink. Spectacular climbing.
olive said on October 23rd, 2007
Same here. That arete would have scared me without the new bolt.

very enjoyable climb.

90 °F, with high humidity and lichen lichen lichen adds a letter. Very fun though.
nik said on May 8th, 2012

LOVED this route! Totally my style and got it 1st go with some beta from a buddy. LOVE!!!
swj said on August 22nd, 2012
Attempted this without a stick clip but quickly realized that the bottom move is not quite a "gimme". Awkwardly down-climbed to stick clip. Great route, I really loved the top part, mantling up onto that ledge. Perfect anchor positioning for easy cleaning :)
Patb said on August 14th, 2015
Awesome slab sequences separated by positive clipping holds. If you catch it dry do yourself a favor and give it a go.
savvytothemax said on August 17th, 2015
I was super impressed by this line. I spent 12 minutes on it and my legs just about hated me for that, but it was definitely a quality route. The last sequence on the slopey arete is also extremely fun. There's nothing like hugging your way up an arete :)
