I thought this thing was harder than Bowling Pain left of it. Lots of lichen and crumblies.

I liked the moves but it should probably end at the first set of anchors before it turns into the game of "Grab the fuzzy holds and pull". I like the shark fin move down low. Cool.
RRO said on April 23rd, 2007
yeah, you all are more than likely the second team on it since it was sent last year. i tried to clean on it when we bolted it. i think most the routes on this side of the holler are going to get dirty quickly if they dont see traffic. the top anchors were in before terry put in the anchors to the trad climb, since they were up we left it the way it was. the moves down low are cool.

i loved this route. The vigorous start, the vertical feature and the reachy midsection all make for great movement.

About those "fuzzy holds" at the top - don't trust them. Over all, I really liked this route - chossiness is the big drawback. The rock was "clean" but parts aren't quite solid. A chip kicked out that changes the opening moves slightly, but a handful of rock pulled out on one guy on the way to the anchors. The view from up there is great, but lowering the anchors by two bolts wouldn't take anything away from the real meat of the route.

Great route, some rock still breaking at the top but not that much, and not so chossy. Definitely recomended

I really enjoyed this... has cleaned up a bunch... plenty of chalk on it, except up high. I like that it finished up there.

Cool climbing at the bottom but you start to forget how fun that was as you get higher up.
RRO said on June 1st, 2010
i may move the anchors down to the trad line anchors. need to go climb it again.

This route must have cleaned up over time because it seemed of fairly high quality when I climbed it in October of 2010. The roof at the bottom is fun, and the rest of the climbing is quite enjoyable too.

Bottom crux stays wet after a rain. Save for a cold dry day.

I loved every move on this route. Classic. Leave the anchors at the top.
Jeff said on November 11th, 2012
Textbook example of a route cleaning up. This thing is 4 star all day long! Great movement, keeps your attention, and its all there!

This route is pretty rad.

Fun route. Little dirty up too. Stays in shade all day, so nice summer route.
