Quite the technical 5.8 Short and Sweet.

I thought this climb was interesting, kind of reachy. The holds are good, though the beginning step-from-the-boulder-onto-the-big-ledge seemed a little wierd. Questionable rock in some places, but the anchors seemed strong. Watch for a fall from the 2nd/3rd bolt, if you fall from there you might nail the big ledge you started out on. Also, it should be pretty easy to set up a toprope for once you get to the top of this route.

climbs better than it looks.

Climbs about as bad as it looks, although probably better than its neighbors...pretty desperate bolt job

It's short, it's a 5.8. I think it took more time to take the rope out than it did to climb it. However, it was alright.

you're standing on the ground, you're standing on a huge ledge, you're at the anchors, you're on the ground again. A fall on this might be something you'd want to avoid.

Bash it cause you didn't send it. Screw you all. It's what it is and it's not bad at all. Good job Jared and JJ!

It was ok... I'll agree it was reachy. I didn't like the roof at the anchors I couldn't stand straight.

Fun line not great not crappy you can set a top rop on from the top of this one

it's a nice spot on bruisebrothers to get away from the crowds. needs a little more traffic to clean it up. definitely some bad fall potential with the big ledge and boulder.

I hated clipping over my head over a ledge while crimping while being tired from climbing all day. I think I missed the hold you were supposed to clip off of on that bolt, I think it was higher up.

Didn't care for it, rough rock and just wasn't fun. Also all around the sitting, standing, belaying area was over run by black ants. The good is that it stayed pretty shaded and no one was there when the rest of the wall was groups of 4 stacked 4 deep waiting to get on things.

Suprisingly good, too bad it doesn't go on longer. The only one worth climbing on the left flank of BB.
