Great line.

Great route. Last bolt is misplaced. Should be 18 inches lower. As it is you are clipping off crux holds.

Outstanding line, very cool!

12b (maybe soft?).. great line and don't let the current grade discourage you from getting on it..
allah said on May 23rd, 2006
Great route and bolted very well i thought (clip the last bolt off of the pocket) but i do agree with Paul on this it is 12b this route isnt near the caliber of Steelworker, stain or wild gift

Paul3eb & Allah, maybe you should send it before you give it a grade
allah said on June 2nd, 2006
what makes you think i havent sent the route?
Green3 said on June 2nd, 2006
the fact that you are a chuffer, just kidding, but seriously...
Green3 said on June 5th, 2006
obviously joking with you kenny
Astroman said on July 30th, 2006
Yep, that last clip is hard (medium-length draw, clip from the pocket). Chris struggled with where to drill that one. I think the difficulty is comparable to Steelworker and Stain. On the other hand, I've always thought Wild Gift was by far the easiest "12c" in the Gorge.
Horatio Felacio said on August 26th, 2007
the great horatio felacio says that it is soft, and that the last bolt should be lowered 1' 3" in order to clip from the wonderful pocket. however, i do not agree with paul3eb or allah on this one...they are both weak and made of vagina hair if they think it is .12b. at the most, it is the most. if you use my beta, you will agree. such beta can be bought for $3.99. please p.m. inquiries to SCIN, titled, 'Mosaic Beta by Horatio Felacio'. Good luck dicksuckers!

Everyone seems to think that this route is easy ... but I thought that it was solid for the grade (Harder for me than stain which has a similar style). Either way, great movement. The moves get harder as you go, and its not over until you get the clipping hold at the anchors.

whatever the grade (I think it is as hard as herd mentality and Blue eyed honkey Jesus), this is a 5 star route, thanks for putting it up
Meadows said on June 1st, 2009
Chriss - You can't compare grades by the number of tries it takes you. ;-) The crux on this requires some delicate footwork, and I've seen your footwork. =O

Awesome Route!!!!!! Loved it !!!!! fun whip goin to the chains
der uber said on June 15th, 2010
Definitely isn't any harder than 12c, and if it's a b I think it would be solid for sure, but it was pretty hot/humid that day And either way it's a real nice line Good pacing, I like how it gets sustained through the middle and stays there until the finish jugs. Cool moves, too.
firemedic242 said on October 25th, 2010
solid line...12b at most
climb2core said on October 20th, 2012
I will publicly call it 12b now that I sent, but will vote 12d so it doesn't get downgraded ;) Stellar climb regardless and probably a good choice for working into the 12c grade.

Pretty much a perfect sport route. Thanks to Neeko for the clutch Euro kneebar beta.
