4 feet and 60 bolts. That sounds like an awesome climb.

The name is the only cool thing about this route. It's not usually considered polite to give someone a "Salty Pirate".

Wow is this thing the opposite of fun! If anyone cares I wouldn't mind getting my leaver biener back from the 2nd to last bolt. I couldn't get off this thing fast enough! Sorry guys:(

The route is not bad, just dirty. I spent about 25 minutes brushing the holds on the top half of the route, especially foot placements. It is much better now. When the holds are brushed and the beta found, this line is just as good as the 2 to the right. Power2u, asking for your bail biner back ... ? I bootied that a long time ago while lowering from the 5.10 to the right.

Pretty cool sequence of undercling pockets.

the sequence between the last two bolts is pretty cool but hard to figure out. that section makes the route. I had to haul up a stick clip the first time to figure out what the hell to do b/c i got sick of taking 20 foot falls on the run out cru

This route has started to clean up nicely and is worth it for the boulder problem protecting the chains

feels more like easy 11 R than 12a sport climbing

Awesome route. Pretty easy up to the last bolt, but the whole thing is worth doing. Fun boulder sequence up top.

I think it’s 8 bolts now; not runout at all. It’s also very clean and probably mid-5.11. Fun route!
