What's up with the bolting job on this???? The first bolt is like 30 feet off the deck?? I've heard of mandatory stick clip but this is a little ridiculous.

We could easily reach the first bolt with a stick clip (nothing ridiculous here, except your lack of spacial awareness). Amazing route, IMO, this is by far the best on the wall. Awesome technical climbing with multiple cruxes. Probably best to talk your partner into chalking holds and hanging draws, right fray21? More people should get on this.

I would suggest bringing a Chris to chalk holds and unlock the beta! A couple hard face moves seperated with great rests. Fun route.

Any reason why more people aren't getting on this?
Brentucky said on November 8th, 2011
What makes you think people aren't getting on it Saxman? If it is the spray list maybe it is just that this is the toughest of the three. I'll vouch for that as my name didn't yet make the cut. I also agree with chriss that it is the best of the three with several thoughtful (and tough) moves.
