Super fun, pumpy climb, on quality rock.

Great climbing but the crux is clipping the bolts
fray21 said on March 28th, 2011
It's hard to clip when the holds are so big your hands get stuck??
dustonian said on March 28th, 2011
This route actually has some bad holds for an "11c"... on the middle 2 clips anyway.
chriss said on March 28th, 2011
There is a crux move going past the second to last (4th?) bolt, but once the holds were chalked up there is not a hard clip on the route. Fun jugs with easy clips and one tougher move. Just as good as unknown 4, needs some traffic to clean up.

Worthy of a name and some stars. Very continuous for the grade.

Seeing that real climbers grade this 5.11c and 5.11d my feelings are now hurt. Even at the sandbagged chocolate factory I thought this one deserved 5.12a. That crux felt like a way hard 11 move while carrying a pump.

Its a bit of a skin-shredder too. Looking forward to getting it clean.

Fun route with a distinct crux. The sharp pocket move may feel like 12a if you can't get 3 fingers in it. All the other holds are friendly. Race the pump clock.

An excellent route, as advertised this is why you come to climb at the RRG. There are no bad clips whatsoever, the crux is obviously the stab to the left hand pocket before the last bolt.

super fun climb, awesome little boulder prob mid way up.
Babs55 said on July 15th, 2013
The last time I got on this the 4th bolt was spinning a bit!
Anonymous said on August 9th, 2013
if the bolt is spinning, tighten it! 9/16" socket/wrench and i'm sure it'll be all good.

to whatever fuckstick tried to zip tie biners to the anchors of this: I pulled the last set off because they were worn and there's no need for leavers. as for the half worn and sharp spirit you put up there and the other piece of garbage, they are pulled as well. don't put garbage on routes.

tough talk anon- I'll be your huckleberry gotta love Keyboard comfort

Replaced 1st bolt with glue-in and tightened #4 (was spinning) - will get a full rebolt with glue-ins soon.

My buddy pitched at the 4th and got impaled on the fence post. Who do I sue for this stroke of retardation. Who's council did you dipshits seek before implementing this plan? How about one staircase and a small fence to alleviate erosion. What a waste of resources and money and a catalyst for litigation all rolled into one.

You don't sue anyone. Either (1) you signed a waiver, or (2) you are a trespasser and have no right to sue for unsafe conditions. Climb at your own risk, and learn how to belay.

We're actually not saying "retard" anymore, and it's counsel, not council. Carry on.
