this is fun, the natural line stays to the right and is easier but the new 'project' line basically uses the same holds. easier than 10c but harder than 9 I would say.

Murano I assume.

First 2/3rds is great, fun climbing, then you come over the lip and it's confusing no fun slab climbing to the top. The bottom is easier for tall climbers but still pretty tough, shorter climbers will have to figure out a different way. Pretty good route overall except for the slab section.

i thought this route was great! pretty much 2 completely different routes in 1. fun, challenging start move to awesome plates and then on to an interesting slab section with some neat slopers. it even comes equipped with an anchor clipping jug!

There is a lot of chalk going to the left of the crux but head straight through the slab to keep it 10b/c or head left for the 10a/b variation.

It started pouring literally ten seconds before I got on this thing and after we had hung our draws. The bottom pocketed (fun) section stays dry but the slopey slab does not (bad). I'm looking forward to getting back on this when the whole thing is dry.

Pretty good route, bad bolt near the top.... 2nd from top? Needs to be replaced.
gripster said on November 23rd, 2009
agreed, bad bolt at the last bulge. bolt stud is about 1/4" out of the rock now.

Fun route, the bolt protecting what I thought was the crux(slab move at the top) is definitely a little scary looking.

Bolt replaced.. ss 5/8 Wave bolt glue in.. Please do not lower from bolt use some bail biners or links if u must bail.. Thanks Dustin for giving me the bolts to do this work.
CLIMBTRAD said on March 11th, 2012
On a side note the bad bolt came out by hand with a small 1/4 turn..the sleeve was rusted into 3 broken parts... I can not believe this bolt did not blow on someone!!!
swj said on August 22nd, 2012
I think the slab part of this wouldn't feel so hard if it weren't for the awesome plates that precede it. Just when you think you're on a jug haul (a really fun one)... the jugs disappear! And you have to get all delicate and technical.... and... uh... a little scared :) But this makes it a great climb in my opinion.

Tightened up the spinner at the 1st bolt. Should be good to go for now.

I left a pair of tenayas at the base of this route on 10/4/19. I will gladly compensate you for their return.

Climbed this one on 12/14/20. At the top are chains, rings and then quick links. The chains are ok and the quick links look recently added. But both rings are worn >40% through, need replacing very soon.
