If this is the one I think it is, I did it the weekend after it was bolted. I tried to on-sight it but it was to dirty. I did a bolt to bolt and cleaned it enough to send it. The start is the rating. Super fun. 5.10 something.

i think that this is the route that norma and bram bolted... but am not sure of other details/name...
Sunshine said on October 3rd, 2005
I think you are correct Pete. But we must be absolutely sure. Someone could get hurt.

Cool campus start. Just say no to the cheater stones. Watch out clipping the anchors, Stewy pulled off a hand hold that was bigger than a fist. Probably not the only ticking time bomb. Fun, fun climb.

I think this is one of the best routes of its grade. Long and pumpy. Excellent stone. Interesting holds. It doesn't get much better than this.

Great route, a few letters easier than 10d. Cruxy start with the roof, then lots of jugs to the top (gets easier as you go). I started from the left around the corner on the arete then to the roof at the 1st bolt. If you want to make it 10d start directly below the 1st bolt.

Am I the only one who thinks that comment makes absolutely no sense? Why even bother if you are going to contradict yourself in two sentences?

This was my first 10d, and I had a blast! The line had a great variety of holds and was a really enjoyable route to push myself on.

nice route Bram! This was one of the only dry (non-condensated) routes around today... the rock is super clean with fun moves.

Enjoyable movement the whole way.

Fun climb. Second time doing it. There is a paper wasp making a nest close to the anchors, so be careful if you want to clean this route.
Rx2Climb said on October 2nd, 2016
Tons of fun. Sustained route with a crazy fun and juggy campus start. Great movement and variety of holds (jugs, slopers, sidepulls, handjams!).
KhaoticKlimber said on April 30th, 2019
Bolt for the top right anchor is loose and hanger is a spinner as of today, so be wary. Otherwise, first pure campus start I've ever encountered. Fun, interesting moves the whole up and a few "thank god" holds. Let's up right when you need it.
