Is this route open? There is a rope hanging clipped into several bolts with single biners.

This route rocks. Lots of fun. The styles come at you in zones and in units of body lengths. Excellent line Matt!

Shoot Matt, I taped the memorial for Tina but I can't remember the name of the song. I'm assuming you want to name this route after that song? Pm her. That'd be a cool tribute.

Love this route. Cleaned out a wasp making a nest at the crux. Then lost some skin on my nipple going for the ledge above the crux, ouch :(.

A long draw on the bolt below the crux should help keep you away from the ledge if you fall.

Walked past this line for years until today as it was dry and in the sun. What a fun climb, thanks for bolting this one.
