Got on this Sunday. WTF?! If these "developers" had any nuts they would have used them to lead the route with! Listen old man, why don't you stay in Morehead with your 3 bolt 30 ft. chosspiles and leave the real climbing to us...K?

Ah ole Anonymous... Being mean to The Corpes will only earn you bad karma.

this thing is a waste of me, i have put in more than a few of my own that should be stripped.
Jeff said on April 16th, 2012
Replaced the drop ins with chain. As they were, it would give you a twisted rope on lowering. Did not put drop ins back as they would most likely become another set of anchors that would need "policing". Done, if you want your steel 'biner and two aluminums, let me know.

Of course I meant Don, not Done...

I thought it was fun, as did the new climbers that TR'd it with me...

I thought it was fun too.

Not nearly as good as the one to its' left and right. Could have been omitted but I guess it adds another climb in the area for beginners... we need more mediocre quality moderates ;-)

Thought it was more fun than boiler plate. Enjoyable climbing up to a roof that makes you think for a second. Probably shouldn't have been bolted though there is adequate good gear placements to found

Hope no one cares if I add some beefy quicklinks to the chains.

3 star route for sure, has a beginning, middle and end, very enjoyable, how may routes can boast a "head jam"?, nice to have some moderates in the mix, great for morning sun on a cold day

Left anchor bolt is starting to spin. Would have tightened it, but didn't have a wrench.

Honestly I thought this was one of the most fun 5.8 sport climbs I've done. Varied movement, some stemming and a giant flake up at the top.

Lots of cool features, but I thought it looked a lot better than it climbed. The trad climber in our group really enjoyed it, but the rest of us thought it was mediocre.
