i think this route will get better reviews once it's been climbed a few times. superb moves with a spicy finish.

I loved this route. It is a bit easier than conscription, one over to the right. BTW If you are looking for the Massachusetts-shaped hold just above bolt 3, don't bother. I had my left foot on it and was in the process of putting the rope in the gate when it blew. The jolt shifted my hands to a position that put all my weight on nothing but my fingerprints. one thousand one, one . . . meanwhile my belay shifted his head to the right to avoid the rock, but it got him in the arm and drew blood. He was wondering where I was, fully expecting me to have fallen already. He looked up at the second that I was hitting the end of the rope with my feet ~2 feet from his head. . . thousand two.

Yuck, dirty, and I broke a big hold off going into the break at mid height, be careful.

Left a bad taste in my mouth. I washed it out with motor oil.

not that dirty, but it isn't clean. Thought it was pretty fun.

It's clean now. And climbs well too. A bit awkward getting onto the ledge. Thanks to everyone who broke off the choss before me. :)

Oops, my comment was meant for the line to the right.

I enjoyed this route. It's much easier compared to Conscription just to the right... probably because the bolt above the ledge is a lot easier to clip.

Surely this route deserves more than two stars. I liked it so much that I chose to fall in the same spot at least 300 times.
