this is a nice looking line... just watch out for the big pine tree in a fall
Andrew said on June 8th, 2012
We are planning on cutting the tree down. It is a really good line, with a lot of variety of climbing and holds.

Good job bolting this one Andrew, excellent route! Superb movement and holds.
dustonian said on June 21st, 2012

Andrew said on July 13th, 2012
Tree is now gone... enjoy
dustonian said on July 15th, 2012
Murderer!! j/k... this line is super fun and destined to be a very popular 5.10... get on it!
Andrew said on July 15th, 2012
The tree fell down on its own

Fun climb! Thanks for putting it up and glad that tree decided to fall down.

Wow, this is going to be a classic! Really fun movement. Definitely sad about the tree, but given how awesome this climb is, well, it's a tough call.

really good. trying to avoid smashing all the ladybugs in the crack added to the fun.

Fan-frikking-tastic!!! So much fun movement up through huge holds.

Sweet line. I think I discovered the thumb'r at the top
lena_chita said on May 5th, 2014
The best new 5.10 that I have climbed in a long time. I can't believe I haven't gotten on it before. Looking forward to doing it again when I am in the area.
Rx2Climb said on October 23rd, 2014
After I onsighted this route RSMoore pointed out that I should have used the crack on the right at the top with all the chalk instead of pulling some ridiculous slab frictiony moves going left to the anchors. This is probably why I was cursing and thought that it was extremely dificult for 5.10b. Basically, I am stupid and this route was a lot of fun.

Disregard the last comment was intended for Wonkaholic.

This was one of the most fun 10s I have done. Really enjoyable fun and easy climbing. Loved it. I would do it again.
astathis said on November 15th, 2016
This is amazingly fun. Definitely hop on this.

Hanger was loose on last bolt today; tightened down OK.
