Show some online love and rate the climbs you add to your spray list.
Lander said on November 30th, 2007
Second that Saxman. There are lots of routes that show many ascents but few votes for grade or quality. Even if you agree with the current concensus you should still vote to solidify it.
Saxman said on November 30th, 2007
Andrew, Yasmeen, and Paul. Damn Slackers.
Paul3eb said on December 1st, 2007
ehh.. nope. don't feel like it.
Andrew said on December 1st, 2007
What now, One star.
Saxman said on December 3rd, 2007
Too bad. The more experienced climbers that vote, the more accurate the star ratings and grades will be.
Yasmeen said on December 4th, 2007
Sorry, Sax. I'm going to hold on to the element of mystery on this one. You'll just never know how I felt about this route.
anticlmber said on December 9th, 2007
do you need stars and ratings to make you climb something??? sad if you do.
Saxman said on January 4th, 2008
So why don't you tell Ray his star rating and grade consensus additions to the website are useless? While you're at it, tell everyone else how stupid and foolish they are for trying to quantify route quality and grade.
anticlmber said on January 4th, 2008
don't need to. only person that seems to be offended is you.
charlie said on January 4th, 2008
Moron. I hope you realize the stars and grade consensus features are a result of Paul and Yasi's efforts as well as Ray's. Do everyone a favor and stfu.
Saxman said on January 6th, 2008
Learn to read dumbass. Let's see, my first post, a lighthearted comment with a bit of seriousness in it. My second post, obviously in jest. My third post (and last), my inoffensive opinion. Yasi, who obviously got the joke, replied, ending it. Anti threw shit, so I threw back. If you don't like it, go stick your foot up anti's ass for all I care. Were you abused as a child or what? Always so quick to come to the rescue of people who need none. Why do you think everyone is so helpless?
Saxman said on January 6th, 2008
Ray, Yasmeen, Paul, and anyone else who helped create the star rating and grade consensus code, thank you for making this a great resource for everyone to use and help plan their climbing trips.
anticlmber said on January 6th, 2008
Dear Raymond; your star rating and grade consensus additions to the website are useless. they only cause bickering because people feel sandbagged or tthey get pissed cuz something felt fluffed, and that shit shouldnt get so many stars. i hope to save you from the unwanted persecution by not caring but this prick said i should tell you this. sorry if i hurt your feelings, i love you.
anticlmber said on January 6th, 2008
dear everyone else; you are foolish and stupid for trying to quantify route quality and grade. i don't believe this but i was told i should let you know. sorry for any toe squishing. love.
Saxman said on January 6th, 2008
Much better. Using Raymond can't be good though.
SCIN said on January 7th, 2008
I love you guys.
anticlmber said on January 7th, 2008
stay out of this ray, i don't want you to get your feelings hurt.

BigRed said on March 30th, 2008
Thanks for all the great comments on my route guys. Super motivating.

mega-classic; definitely 5.14c ;)
dustonian said on December 22nd, 2011
Man this thing has cleaned up and is pretty phenomenal for the grade now. Maybe my favorite bolted 10d in the Red.
der uber said on April 2nd, 2012
I didn't expect much form this climb just by looking at it from the ground. It climbs a lot better than it looks.
whoneedsfeet said on November 16th, 2012
Amazing route. Packs a hell of a punch for the grade.
Willy said on September 30th, 2015
Cool semi-hidden pockets all over this one and just enough jugs to keep the pump factor low
Chiyram said on September 12th, 2016
This route is great! Can't believe I hadn't climbed it yet. Just enough rests to keep it tame.

The quick links at the anchors are worn about 1/3 of the way through.
