the phantom trundler strikes again, making routes safer for all. There are still a few blocks near the anchor that will eventually go so beware

nice finger moves. probably one of the hardest 5.7's in the gorge, though i get a 7 old school rating, so be prepared for a fleeting 5.9 move or two. takes lots of finger gear.
