needs some traffic to clean it up a bit, some holds are still breaking - but this is a great techy/slabby route with some great holds along the way. really a classic john bronaugh line.

I agree w/ Pete that it's still dirty and needs cleaning, but the climb boasts some fun slab moves. It's a satisfying route.

I loved this climb! I have been away awhile. This is a great confidence builder. There is a key hold to the upper right at the 5th(?) bolt.

This route was OK. It was still pretty dirty when I climbed it. I pulled a few holds off which added some excitement.

great route
Jeff said on October 22nd, 2007
Fun, thought provoking climbing. I think I went almost as many ft. side to side as ground to anchors.

loved this route, very well set with a beautiful pocket everywhere just when you need it

sweet line... sustained and fun the whole way but with plenty good no hands stances and "thank god" pockets right after you step up

Great route with just enough holds

Dustonian is dead on. Never thought I'd love a mono pocket so much.
