up high a major hold can stay wet and sandy..too bad, because the rest of this thing is pretty dang good.

I broke a very nice hold to the lright of the anchors and down a foot and a half, probally what most people used to clip the anchors from. Oops, now its a small crimp and a touch harder. A couple holds up high seemed dirty and wet, kind of a shame, up to the last bolt is lots of fun.

I think lowering the anchors might be a good idea to increase the overall quality of this route.
pigsteak said on March 7th, 2007
where would you guys put the anchors? I am all up for any suggestions to make it better.
chriss said on March 7th, 2007
Not to far above the last bolt. The climb has nice movement on good rock up to the last bolt, say for the first 45 feet. Then from a right sidepull crimp you go left hand into a wet dirty slot, and follow bad, dirty rock for a little bit to the anchors. I would rather have a 4 star route for 45 feet, then add an extra 8-10 feet which drastically lowers the quality of the route.

Great bouldery start! Top is a little crumbly but not bad enough to warrant not getting on the route.

This route is way fun! too bad it's over a mud pit. awesome 2nd clip.

The second clip would be jacked if you didn't stick clip it. The 5th bolt clip is also a bit exciting since it is easiest to go above and then reach way down to clip. The route is a bit on the perma-dirty side, but the holds are good enough to deal with it and the movement is pretty cool and powerful all the way up. I think it's >= 3 stars and well worth doing even with the dirt and the mudpit belay area.

when I bolted this I remember muttering under my breath.."if a weaksauce like brentucky gets on this, he'll wuss out and stick clip bolt two..."...glad I paid attention.
Brentucky said on October 10th, 2013
On a side note, if you are belaying someone like pigsteak on this who can't even do the opening moves then you, the belayer, will definitely want him to stick-clip bolt #2. Otherwise you will have a whole lot of pigsteak swing very unpleasantly into you.
