The FAs name is Alan Grau. Start 10 feet right of Sunday Night Cock Fights. Pull the steep start to good jugs right of the bolt line. Pull a tough move right below the anchors. Fun route!

3 star movement on 1 star rock.....just too much sand for my taste....

this route will be good once (if) the rock cleans up. As it is, it is a highly stressful lead on bad rock. Would like to revisit this route in 5 years.

man this route is good- not much sand other than the killer holds all the way up, didn't break anything- if you like Moonbeam/Sunshine, you will like this 1

I thought this route was really fun. Rock was fine for the 5 or so people I saw run up it.

Wasp nest just above the 6th bolt. you can traverse right through some sandy rock to avoid it.

way better than one star. watch out for the poison ivy around the anchor tho.

This was a great route. Awesome holds all the way up this thing, just got to make sure you find them. I'm surprised how few stars this gets.

This route seems to have cleaned up nicely. Don't let the old comments scare you away. Fun and interesting moves the whole way.

One of the best 10a sport route of the Reds. Definitely a must do. Not that much holds option for the grade which is a cool thing. The movements are flowing nicely on good rock!

This route gas cleaned up. I thought it was a nice route. 3 star for sure. Nice warm up, Much better than Wonkaholic.

1 star!?!? High quality rock and great side pulling jugs. Not worthy of only 1 star.

2nd bolt spinner. Didn’t have wrench with me otherwise I would’ve fixed it.
