Piece of shit. Like climbing a disappearing route.

Not worth a star. The route right of it is a lot better.

not one of johns best, akward is a good word. each time you get on the route it will move differently. the print guide and online are out of sync. if im not mistaken the print has hopscotch as the right ledge route and autograph as this route. it felt more 11a than 10c.

Ok, I will admit it when I first did this route years ago I hated it but I got back on it and now I want to show this route a little love. I actually enjoyed it. Maybe it's because I was forewarned, maybe I have mellowed but whatever the reason I think it deserves at least 2 stars and actually has a bit of a flow. The friable edges have broken off and it meanders just a bit but nothing that makes it unsafe. I found it to actually be a bit of a one move wonder at the middle bulge, with a long reach to an inconspicuous positive crimp leading to jugs. The finish is classic John Bronaugh all the way...following something of a grove, past numerous bulges wandering around on friction slab like a bolted trad climb while you wonder why this climb didn't end 3 bolts ago..but today I found it kinda of fun.
