This one ain't over 'til it's over... Don't expect much at the top, as I did not find a 5.10 jug.

Well, the "credit card" hold at the top, which was probably keeping the grade on this a little lower, is no longer there thanks to my right foot. Difficulty bumped up a notch now. Enjoy!

One of the worst routes I've been on in a while. Dirty, chossy, bad bolt placement, and the movement sucks.

Your first comment on this Curbside route is still one of my all-time favorites, Kipp: http://www.redriverclimbing.com/RRCGuide/?type=route&id=2057

Sorry pigsteak, I've enjoyed MANY excellent routes you've put up all over the gorge, including a few at Curbside. I just didn't enjoy this one, the bolt above the roof is a little sketchy considering the rock, but I'm also weak. Thanks for your work!

no worries man....I actually agree with you..it needs glueins if anything. in fact, the anchor clips are a bit contrived because the original anchors were supposed to be higher but the rock quality got even worse if you can beleive that.

If this ended at the last bolt I would bump this up to 2 stars.....

I liked this route. I took a friend from Bishop here for his first climb ever in the Red, & he really liked it too.

I would bump this up two stars if the anchors were up and to the left a bit on what appeared to be good rock to the layman. It would make you climb through that last bit. I liked it lots though.
