Why is here still a rope hanging on this route? Is it open?
JR said on April 22nd, 2010
It would be nice if this had bolts and a proper name. The bottom is little crappy but would clean up. Good rock in the middle that houses a very nice crux sequence. Easier finish. O'well, at least it is easy to set up a TR. This section of wall is very reminiscent of Drive-By.

Is this a mixed route now, or sport? How many bolts?

These route is much longer then 55 feet. May be 75 or 80 feet.

Fun route... crux feels harder than the two 11's to the left
Rollo said on April 7th, 2013
i agree with dustonian about the crux, this one will end up as good as the other two with traffic. One thing i noticed was alot of fractured rock surrounding the second bolt though.

Fun route, with two distinct section. The good stuff is in the upper part. After climbing the two routes to the left and Jingus, this felt like a bit of a sandbag.

I would rate this as hard to balls hard for the grade.

Hard as ovaries... even worse. Now imagine leading it on gear...

Really like this route! Easy climbing to a tough little crux. Felt it was as tough as the 11's next to it just like dustonian said.

Great climb, sandbag grade.

Really good route! I thought it was as good as the two to the left of this.
