No sendage, but you sporty - traddy guys are crazy! Some stout moves as your constantly trending left. I bailed after the 4th bolt. Note to self - sack up.

this thing is great...kinda dirty but great. The first four bolts are a bit desperate but then you get a nice sit down rest followed by nice lay backing to another sit down rest. i don't see it becoming a classic but it was really fun to get on. the green mossy chimney at the top was icing on the cake

Absolute blast to climb. Make someone else climb it first to hang draws and brush it for you.

Will clean this up again this winter so hopefully other people will get on it. Truly is a great route that deserves more traffic.
