Right of Better than Homemade. Start with a jug then bust through a tough start and gun for the ledge. Scum out of the ledge on small crimps and slap hard at chalk spots to reach the next bolt. A few more moves gets you a reward ledge and easier climbing to the chains.

Bad ass long pulls pumping sustained crimping power.

Great movement! Don't let the hard move get you, it's not that bad with a little trickery.

Hasn't this route name been used before? Gray's Wall trad route?
dustonian said on April 18th, 2012
Yeah but no one does the other one, and this one is way classic. Perfectly bolted, props D!

Jimmy, is blue your favorite color or were you just headed to a UK game after the send?

One of the best 12c's at the Red. Watch your climber headed to the fourth bolt kinda spicy if you got a big ol sporto loop out. Must do at the crag.

PM me if the draws on this route are yours.

why are you taking down draws that aren't yours?
Willy said on March 5th, 2014
I haven't taken them down, I want to swap a couple of them out though for a bit because the dog bones are looking sketchy. If they are yours, PM me and I can stash somewhere, or get them back to you.

ha ha... It's a bonus if someone is kind enough to try to find the original owner when it comes to pulling abandoned mank on a route they are climbing.

not mine.

With trickery I didnt even feel like the knee move was the crux...there was a long move with the right hand to a good incut that shut me down a few times yesterday. Loved it. I thought this route was 5 full stars and I haven't even sent it yet...

Stellar movement on gorgeous rock! A double draw on the third bolt can be helpful. The moves coming out of the ledge without using the kneebar (it always felt awkward to me) aren't too hard and really cool. Coming off of the brass knuckles triple mono crimp thingy and slapping the jug was the move that repeatedly spit me off. Fun crimping and side pulling up the colorful groove after that. Knarly route!
