One of the best. Don't expect it to be a gimme though.

Dude! This is a really good route, the sloper problem in the middle was super fun. Nice work Kipp!

very fun route! milk that no hands rest, you'll need it. at the middle sloper section crux, i clipped from a left pocket undercling, then fight your way through steep overhang with well-ticked ledges/crimpers. some nice crossover moves to get to the top

Cool moves. That high third bolt sure is pointlessly dangerous though.

the third bolt, if you'll notice was lower but the rock quality sucked..I put the bolt in and the rock split when tightened. so it had to go higher. I did think about adding some chain to it. ro a glue in would work there.
