The aesthetic discontinuous crack system right of Das Krue. Lots of technical insecure jamming in flared pods with just enough thank-dog feet. Save a few small and medium cams to double up on pro for the highly engaging exit mantel move.
Moves: Flared jams
Descent: Rap from tree
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry
Owner: RRGCC

I love thank dog feet!
dustonian said on March 6th, 2013
this one has your name all over it, Crompypants
Andrew said on March 6th, 2013
Thank dog is street slang cromp. You wouldn't know. Its has similar meaning to hood luck.
dustonian said on March 6th, 2013
poor Cromp is very sheltered... in fact, his mom just let him out of her bedroom for the first time last year.

I actually sent this on TR when we were working this wall, but decided it not worthwhile to advertise because of the i get FA credit?
dustonian said on March 6th, 2013
No. What mud? This was one of the only non-muddy spots at the wall yesterday...
pigsteak said on March 6th, 2013
oh wait, I was just informed that my tr send was not really a send because I hung on the rope a few times.....geesh, just when I thought I did indeed do an FA..but wait, I did do the fa correct? it is just the ffa I missed out on..please help.
dustonian said on March 6th, 2013
Everyone knows toproping doesn't count. You might be talking about a different crack anyway, because there wasn't any mud on this one... a little dirt and lichen maybe, but no mud.
pigsteak said on March 6th, 2013
the one I did was flaring went up about a third of the wall, slopey horizontal break of sorts, jack knifed left a few feet then back up..never led it cause I was too chicken of the gear....nice job btw!
dustonian said on March 6th, 2013
Yeah that's it. Did you do the mantel topout? Sketch!!
