I'm biased, but this route is awesome. The start hold is wet right now, but it's not a big deal. The route is steep, the draws are fixed, and you should get on it.

Hell Yea - Nice work Dan!
Wolf said on November 12th, 2008
Thanks Don, and thanks for the drill. As a historical side note, I did the FA with one less bolt than there is now. I decided to add another one to be clipped from the roof after the fact because I didn't like the idea of people taking big, repeated whips on a bolt set in a dead horizontal roof, and because it was a real bitch to get back on the climb if you did fall there. Skip it if you want.

This is a wild route. Heady and committing, with a good pump at the top. Comparable in difficulty to false idol and irrevant C.

I am biased also Wolf. I could not bring myself to climb this route. The choss scared the shit out of me. Bailed.

Beautiful looking line! Didn't get on it, but definitely will next time I'm at this crag. Where is the chossy section? After you pull the roof?
Wolf said on April 27th, 2011
There's some crispiness up to the roof, but the choss is primarily in the roof. Don't knock sand in your eyes. After the roof is pretty solid, though rarely traveled.

I went down and looked at this the other day. From the ground the fixed gear looks a little suspect to me.

Considering the draws have been on it since 2008, yes it's suspect.
