blake bolted the line and im not sure if he has sent it yet or if its open. terry used to walk by it and announce everytime that he was going to bolt it.

Sent as of today. Thanks to Blake for bolting such a sweet line, and for lettin me get on it. Really unique climbing... and lots of spice. Bring your trad game... and then some. As far as grade... 12b/cish.

Go Kris!!! Some of the craziest moves I have every witnessed...

The bottom has some less than desirable rock... but the only holds you need are solid. The dihedral is one of the coolest I've done...

This route is sweet, with some moves that aren't typical for the Red. A bit spicy up top, but all my falls were clean.

had a hell of a time on the top section......whats the beta for those top moves after the last bolt??
