I am very surprised this route hadn't been bolted yet. It has really fun vert style climbing with interesting moves, including the mandatory mid-crux mono. Have fun.

I was trying not to sandbag to much, but maybe it is 11a. By the way... the red tag in the picture is gone, it was just there while the glue was drying.

The mono reminds me of sticking my finger in my girlfriends butt hole.

Really fun! I'll study up on route FAs beforehand next time, so I don't end up raving to Andrew later in the day about "this awesome vert line at the Lode that Dustin must have put up." Sorry, cous. ;)

Thought that mono was one of the friendlier holds on this route. Mean little crimpers the first half
