Great Adventure.

I've been told the route is hard to clean. I'll put perma-draws on it. There are currently 3 chain draws on it for the sections where a long draw was necessary. Cool move out of the hueco, exciting finish.

get a good rest in the hueco, you'll need it!

Brad, there is no reason to put perma draws on this, the three chain draws you have added (invested in) are plenty. Wild route! very nice work.

Great route, feels like an easier version of the Midnight Surf's right side.

5 star movement on 2 star rock. If you don't mind cleaning every hold you grab this has some of the coolest moves you'll ever do in the Red.

Great route! I had a ton of fun figuring out where to go. The chain draws are in perfect spots for cleaning. When I come back I'll put steel biners on the chain draws.

A bit of random route history. Brad FA'ed this in a thunderstorm and stuck the dyno/deadpoint move after the hueco right when a clap of thunder struck.

Thanks for the history, cous. So many cool sections on this thing - awesome work, Brad!

I don't think there are any moves harder than 11c, but there's a lot of 11c on this thing.

What's with the bolted traverse to the left, about 50 feet up this route? Tried to get on it yesterday and bailed at the first chain draw – very dirty and spider covered.
