Cork Eye is really cool find! The bottom will hopefully clean-up with some traffic. This route packs in some fun fluid bouldery movement. This is a great must do companion for it's equally intriguing neigbor Lobster Claw. Kipp has a good (Cork)-eye for a line!

I liked it but I like Lobster Claw more. It's longer and more sustained.

Fun route, just needs some traffic to keep the bottom clean.
