this is a nice looking line... just watch out for the big pine tree in a fall

We are planning on cutting the tree down. It is a really good line, with a lot of variety of climbing and holds.

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.

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.

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.

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