OK moves down low should have ended at the second to last bolt as the top 20 feet is covered in lichen! Not much fun up there, but I guess it adds dificulty becasue it is SCARRY and hard to read.

Whatever fag. "Look at me! My name is Matt and I thought this route was so easy! Does that mean I am as strong as my butty buddy Chris Sharma?"

This thing has cleaned up a lot. The top is clean compared to when I did it a few years back. Definitely worth getting on.

A fun route. The top isnt that bad or that difficult. Worth getting on if you are in the area.

I wish it were longer. Fun sequence of moves up to the 4th bolt, and then it gets much easier. I really didn't like how the 'biner is positioned on the top draw (it is hitting the rock bulge halfway on the spine), but if you did make it that far, you probably aren't going to fall between the last draw and the anchors.

Great pumpy companion to its neighbor left.

easier than who is who and both are great fun. last bolt placement surprises me for a john route. good climb either way.

The way the last bolt is placed makes the carabiner lay across the bulge of the rock. Hopefully a fall wouldn't snap the biner. Probably not likely to fall going to the chains, but it's an unnecessary risk.
