Good first lead. Climbs much better than it looks.
RRO said on August 9th, 2005
How do you edit comments ? Anyways, I meant to say good lead for someone breaking into the 5.8 range.

Cool route! The rock looks suspect in places but nothing broke on me. Overhangs a little and the jams are good. I like it!

The tree has some bug problems; at least that’s how I interpreted all the woodpecker holes in the branches. The base of the tree still seems alive and solid. So. . .I just throw that out there so you can have that in the back of your mind. I’m not making any representations or warranties, climbing is an inherently dangerous activity, trees can and do fail, woodpecker’s attack, rocks fall, taking a dookie in the woods can lead to poison ivy, she can still get pregnant even if you’re both standing up, etc., etc.

a little pumpy, but good feet and gear everywhere. didn't really see the traverse working.

The route is great, it deserves anchors that will not be destroyed by a woodpecker.
pawilkes said on November 13th, 2010
than find a drill Micheal and put some in. take some initiative
RRO said on November 13th, 2010
one of these days will get up there and put some anchors in but if anyone is out there with a kit and knows how to use it go ahead and put some in.
michaelarmand said on November 13th, 2010
I have neither a drill nor the knowledge to do so Phil. How about I pay for the hardware? If anyone wants to help out send me a PM and I will Paypal the cash....

I agree this thing needs anchors. I will split the cost with mike and even go out there to put them in with someone who knows how. Also I believe the small tree at the base needs to be removed, I was almost empailed (sp?) when I fell pulling the buldge which is a freaking awesome move btw.
bcombs said on January 16th, 2012
Cleveland, get Tackett's approval and I'll go out there with you and put anchors on it. You have to lead it though, I can't climb trad. ;)
RRO said on January 16th, 2012
yeah for sure , put some on it. i wanted to but with injuries and such just have not made it back out for it. i would put them high after you kinda top out on that ledge. i have gear here if needed.
Jeff said on January 17th, 2012
Seems we were on this not that long ago and it had anchors.
Jeff said on January 17th, 2012
My comment doesn't seem to be showing up. We were on this not long ago and i could swear it has anchors. Kipp, you and Karen did it more recently, anchors?
pigsteak said on January 22nd, 2012
it does not have anchors..just some tatt on a tree.
Dmack said on April 15th, 2012
Now has its own set of anchors, thanks to Scott Hammon
rjackson said on July 28th, 2013
Fun moves, but you must be ready to embrace the choss. It's not that solid until you get a piece in the roof, and the gear placement is not that straightforward. And I would NOT recommend this as a first trad lead unless you are just handing a rack to a 5.13 sport climber. OH! And thanks for the anchors Mr. Ambassador!

didnt really feel like john lennon climbing it... sweet moves. watch out for some fragile goodies up there
