Nice line Kipp. A few thought provoking moves which is always good IMO!

Talk your buddy into hanging the quickdraw at the second bolt and sussing that beta, and then your life will be easier, but still not too easy. Good movement on this one.

First two bolts are oddly placed well right of the climbing. Maybe something broke??? I would say the rest is worthwhile though.

naw, that's what I get for bolting it before climbing it. I need to move those bolts to the left but avoided it because it tends to get wet more to the left. anyone feel free to move them if necessary.

Tons easier than Return to Sender.

good climbing, but 2nd and 3rd bolts are hard to clip and in groundfall territory
pawilkes said on June 5th, 2012
The second bolt is pretty easy to clip if you do a couple more moves and wander into ground fall territory, that's what I ended up doing. moving it left so you could clip off the thumb-derclings would be nice. I don't remember anything unpleasant about the third bolt.
dustonian said on June 5th, 2012
that's what I did too at the 2nd... definite groundfall. 3rd isn't as bad, but you still have to traverse right to clip then traverse left back to the holds
dustonian said on June 5th, 2012
anyway, the climbing was super cool... especially up top

Really fun climb, better if the 2nd bolt gets moved left a foot.
Anonymous said on June 9th, 2020
Not sure the intended line, but felt like 10c max if you hang out just left of the bolts. Great climb, and didnt think any of the bolts need to be moved. Great work, if you really didnt climb it first!
