While dogs were biting and fists were flying over at the Lode a small group of developers enjoyed the peace of this new found crag. Let's hope that sort of chaos is never seen here. Long and sustained you may think you're at the Lode while climbing this gem. Equipped by Dustin Stephens. :)

whats the word on this thing Dustin? Is it good? Hard?

5-star 12d...Cromper almost sent the other day & I finally did the first crux after evicting a mud wasp from a key dish-pocket. Will be open for sure by mid-August... epic big moves up top on perfect orange rock!

Sweet salty tits! that sounds awesome. I will wait patiently for sendage!

much respect to Scott Curran for helping clean this thing up and basically (almost) sending it 3 or 4 times

Nice job Brad! This route just wouldn't die for me...

If anyone happens to find themselves at the anchor of this route and doesn't mind dropping the fixed line, stashing it out at the crag or hiking it out that day, & sending me a message, that would be much appreciated.

The 3rd bolt is loose and could be very dangerous!

spinner fixed... bring a wrench, kiddies

No bad bolts here... props to who ever fixed the bottom bolts with some nice beefy glue in's..specially that 3rd one just below the low crux ;-) Really rad climb...cleaning up nicely...really long with solid climbing the whole way...sick!

Cool route, hard opening crux! Definitely an adventure! I think some of the rock is a little suspect. I think Blowin' Loadz is better, at least in terms of rock quality.
