Did a hold break right when you pull onto the headwall? Around the sixth bolt? Amazing climb!!

Great moves up the arĂȘte but gets shut down hard with sparse sloping edges when the headwall starts. I can see a big reach being helpful for sure. Someone like Andrew would have no problems on this route. Did you have problems on this route Andrew? If so you are not a rock climber.

A Hidden Gem! Would be 5 stars if it didn't seep at the bottom. Great route Kipp.
