Great climbing on this one with a sequential crux. Topout can be interesting when it's wet... move right

a 60m rope JUST makes it, so tie knots in your tails!!

Did this route in 2008 with Sean Kovatch. I thought it was around 10+ and dubbed it Snitches. Chad.

Nice! What's your last name? I assume that you mean you led it. I thought the upper slab bit where the crack stops was pretty hard, though a lot of that was because of all the lichen on the holds. Great route!

"Did this route in 2008 with Sean Kovatch. I thought it was around 10+ and dubbed it Snitches. Chad." From where did you rap? How far above your last piece were you when you did rap?

How do you do the move after you have clipped the piton? that was the one move I could not figure out how to do:/ def a great route wish it would be a bit cleaner

Move hard to the right

There are small edges there, very balancey but it's all there. Take a brush and clean it up, it wouldn't take much and it would definitely make the crux less insecure.
