Thanks to the wheatleys for all the taunting and torture while bolting this line.

Best one of the 4 on this side of the cliff. Cool start & cool finish!

Nice sun in the morning hours makes this section of cliff a good warm-up option

Really enjoyable! The blank looking section contains plenty of good holds. Kept waiting for a crux up top ....

Excellent route! Nice work on this Jimmy. First two bolts felt the hardest. Only one or two holds that aren't jugs after that to a really neat finish.

Sweet climb! Good movement on nicely textured holds.

Imagine my delight when I gandered this masterpiece from down the holler, I stared at her, and she gazed back at me and that is when I knew.. this is a climb I can really skip the crux on and os my first 11c, and so it became a way of life, and I pondered to myself the many other ways I could skip the cruxes in my own life. Ps sorry I broke the pretty little knob off at the bottom of the climb, it looked like such a good foot as I beach whaled myself on Keshas ledge.

The first bolt is located such that the middle of the bolt side biner hits a ridge in the rock. Probably fine, but I bet you could open the gate if you fell on it just right (and it's kinda hard from 1 -> 2). Great route!!
