greg I think you are a choosspile even if you can climb soft 14's

Solid moves. Solid crimps. Cool throw in the beginning.

fantastic route with a badass dyno.

Fun move in the beginning. Perfect wall in the Winter.

Dyno move easily bypassed with figure four. Regardless, it felt pretty hard in the grade, especially compared to all the mid twelves around the corner on Solarium.

this is called keeping it out the soft pile around the corner
aburgoon said on October 22nd, 2010
yeah, well.... yeah. Figure four
pigsteak said on October 22nd, 2010
what is a figure opposed to say a figure eight?
One-Fall said on October 22nd, 2010
Pig, Aburgoon would be the one to ask. He has posted up that same comment on a handful of routes.

figure four as in that questionable ice climbing technique.

Flying squirrel has taken residence in the jug before the last bolt .

Man, the Arsenal is overrun with wildlife... there's probably a nest of possums on Picador! Ever seen the groundhog who lives in the talus below this route?
climb2core said on July 7th, 2011
damn wildlife infringing on our walls!
vertical1 said on July 8th, 2011
I saw two turtles mating below picador two weeks ago, and saw a snake there three weeks ago. No lie!
dustonian said on July 8th, 2011
Mating turtles... classic!!

I tried this in the summer, and there was a bat sleeping in the first slot after the dyno.
