Really fun balance moves lead to rewarding rest holds. Me and my partner did the cruxes totally different.

I have been to Chica at least 10 times and yesterday was the first day I saw this route dry. I got on it. The movement was awesome, but the layer of mud and grime on the route and rusted bolts really detracted. Maybe it should be chopped? Since it will be permanently dirty/wet?

It's been climbed every year since being bolted in 2008. So I think the perpetually wet is probably not quite correct. Glue ins will fix the rust. Report the bad bolts at badbolt.com and it will be added to our working list.
