at least a grade harder if the black streak is wet
SCIN said on October 27th, 2011
Isn't that true for most routes?
dustonian said on October 27th, 2011
Er... I guess, but this one has two key holds in the black streak at the crux while everything else is in the perma-dry orange rock. Dammit Ray, you just made me blow everyone's onsight.
Cromper said on November 20th, 2011
Great climb! Will clean up well.
Anonymous said on November 27th, 2011
Climbed this route earlier today, two holds broke on the first ledge before the first bolt. Strongly suggest stick clipping the first bolt until the line cleans up a bit more. Great face climbing at the top though.
dustonian said on November 27th, 2011
I didn't clean the bottom part because it was so easy, sorry about that. So good point... stick clip it and be heads up (same for the Fresh Baked to the right). These routes change dramatically after the 3rd or 4th bolt.
neeko said on October 4th, 2012
it totally worth to dig in some choss for the first bolts to find this gold at the top! 5 stars for crux
chriss said on November 25th, 2012
Awesome top 2/3rds. The bottom still needs some cleaning. If you bolt choss, even easy choss, you should clean it :)
dustonian said on November 25th, 2012
thanks for the useful advice, coach!!
chriss said on November 26th, 2012
Anytime! Just remember, when lacing up - Make two bunny ears. The bunny runs around the tree and jumps in a hole. Close it up tight.
dustonian said on November 26th, 2012
and what is the preferred technique for me to wipe your butt, sir?
Anonymous said on November 26th, 2012
And thats a bit far.... Is that really your comparison? The bottom of this is not chossy in comparison to others at the cliff. Just poking fun at your comment "didn't clean because it was so easy". This suggests a half-assed approach to cleaning a spectacular line IMO. I spent the afternoon on my rest day building trails and cleaning new routes (so not a complete armchair quarterback)... I could of saved some time by skipping the easy sections. Sorry If this strikes a nerve, just pointing out the obv..... yawn. By the way, great route! Thanks for putting it up. High five! Can't wait to check out some other climbs at the cliff.

I cleaned the holds I needed. One could waste an entire lifetime scrubbing every possible hold on sandy 5.8.
Anonymous said on November 28th, 2012
dirt pile of a start, clean your routes- you are bolting for others remember-good 3 moves of crux at top. 5 star thought, 2 star climb. T-
dustonian said on November 28th, 2012
Again I cleaned the holds I needed, if there's different ones you'd like to use on the 5.8 approach feel free to clean them yourself as I am not interested in butt-wiping and hand-holding. Man the armchair coaching on this site has gotten super fuckin annoying...can't wait to get back to a climbing area without a gay website for every douche with an asshole and an opinion to levy their worthless proclamations from the comfort of their wank-throne. 2nd guessing everyone's routes on the intardnet like this is lame as fuck, especially when fellow developers do it.
Anonymous said on November 28th, 2012
it says comments- if you dont like feedback from your half ass bolting and cleaning jobs- sell your drill- move out west, maybe Tensleep, nobody would care about you there- it's quiet, no intardnet to pick on you- lots of shit rock to bolt, it would be perfect. If you bolt routes and don't want to hear about the state in which you walked away from it- Don't post it I am a developer, hard not to notice misplaced bolts, stupid little runouts when you don't need them as things break. Would you feel bad if a fellow climber were to get hurt on a route you bolted because of how you bolted it- other climbers are trusting you to make the route as safe as you can with them in mind- It's sport climbing, not trad. -T
dustonian said on November 28th, 2012
Step away from the keyboard and grow a pair Troy. Tensleep is even more gay than here.
Anonymous said on November 28th, 2012
Dustonion that's some irony -- you of all people on this site, telling someone to step away from the keyboard.
Anonymous said on November 28th, 2012
oh i know Dust, your comments on cleaning and bolting would go great there, nobody to bitch about your ethics, no place to post route info, you could live in your perfect 5 star world- and you shouldn't call your home base "gay"- the last few that like you might start to see through YOU- i did. The main difference between us is I bolt for the people, when you bolt for you- Keep your 2cents worth of comeback- it doesn't bother me like it does you-T
dustonian said on November 28th, 2012
Drop the macho act and good Samaritan delusions. Leave the "Snarf Victories" out there alone and come rebolt some routes, build some trails, or work on access with us sometime, then you will have actually done something "for the people."
Spikeddem said on November 28th, 2012
Now, now--there's no need to be saying hurtful things about Ten Sleep.

Troy you are an egotistical tool, go fuck yourself. The only reason why you are 'bolting for the people' is so you can spin a delusion that you are a member of a community. But guess what, no one fucking cares. You will always be a goatee toting fuckhead. Take your drill and get the fuck out of the red.

why don't you say that to him face to face Dustin, would love to see the outcome of that

Not Dustin homie, just someone who has had to deal with his antics in the past. You know you left Iowa for a reason Troy...

Wow, people gettin at it! Great route by the way, 5 star movement up top!!
crimpandpeel said on November 29th, 2012
hey there little Mr. Anonymous- you have not a clue about what you are talkin about, um i still live in Iowa, i'm not part of any coalition or climber group, i don't need to be recognized for my efforts and it's a soul patch ya tard- so from your comment earlier, you have about Zero right about me,, so you have a mouth i see, show yourself, if we ran into each other before- can't wait to see you again- come on kid- don't hide, I'll be back real soon, from Iowa- with my drill ;) babe
ray said on December 14th, 2012
I didn't think the start was very dirty and it's easy climbing regardless. Bad ass route though. Love the sidepulls.
Brentucky said on December 18th, 2012
I also didn't notice any problems with excessive dirt or choss on the easy, bottom half. If 12a is at your limit this one is going to take some good mental fortitude and get your heart pumping real good. Very cool boulder sequence.

i love this route!

now clean and AWESOME!!

This might seriously be the biggest waste of bolts ever.
Anonymous said on November 2nd, 2015
the previous comment is a perfect example of when hyperbole is annoying. really??? with all the choss piles out there this route is the one that might be the biggest waste of bolts? so many routes are so much worse than this one.
AidClimber said on November 24th, 2020
This route was the tits! Felt pretty hard for the grade, but the crimp sequence up top is great. Can't imagine ever clipping that bolt in the middle of the crux.
