DIRTY at present, offers a little techy climbing, some topside slab, will be a great route when its gussied up, pumped me out at the boulder 60 feet up. freezing cold in the morning, best view in the boneyard thus far for me.

It is a little dirty but is a really fun slab!

Excellent slab! Perfect for the grade. Long, fun and great view from the top.

It is definitely clean now...I enjoyed it.

If this were elsewhere in the red, it would have eight or nine bolts, not twelve. Not that I skipped any. Worth doing though for sure.

Great route, nice balance moves on second half of climb. Crux in middle of climb is interesting for a moment. Great 5.9 climb. 50M rope will get you back down from the top. This is a great wall with multiple fun climbs in this grade range.

If this is fun i must be in Kansas still. Pray for the storm little Toto.

This route is an apology for the entire wall the way Austin is an apology for Texas. 4 stars, super fun.

the first 50-60 feet of this route is amazing! however, once you get to the ledge you have a really tough move up to the next bolt on a slab, this one move really hurt the routes rating in my opinion

A 5.9 move hurt the rating of a 5.9 climb?
