Continue walking right until you reach a steep gully hosting three bolted lines on the left side. This begins at the mouth of the gully and wanders up the arete. With the name don't expect an instant classic.

looked like a good idea at the time to bolt it...just average after I put it in....

I think you are selling yourself short on the "average" description. Thought it was fun start to finish, and when it cleans up could be a 4 star 10a.
Rollo said on June 23rd, 2013
Agree with the Rooky. This one will be pretty popular once it cleans up. Climbs like a gym route. If it ain't a jug you grabbed the wrong hold. Whoever said one star is a jackwagon. This was the easiest of the three for me... I think it's a,b,c from left to right.

got back on this with Lee a few weeks back and changed my mind...I like it, just needs traffic (dont all developers say that?)

it looks pretty good from the ground anyway... and nice glue-ins btw, thought it was Jeff's work!
pigsteak said on August 7th, 2013
lol dustin..I have over 100 glue ins sitting in my garage...just waiting for the right routes;)

the name is right, but I liked this climb. Different from the other 2 on the wall with some more powerful bulges to pull. Deserves some more stars once it cleans up with more traffic

The route is cleaning up nicely. Very fun. Great mixture of holds and moves. The overhanging section in the middle was fun with great jugs to grab.

Enjoyed this one, thanks Kipp!

Felt a bit adventurous and a lot longer than 55ft. Great route! Mostly clean now.

Felt taller than 55ft to me as well.

Shame the approach sucks, as this would have a ton of traffic in an easily accessible area. And maybe not your legacy Kipp, but definitely worthy of the bolts and time. Thanks.

Our group enjoyed this route. Fun little bulges, sit down rests, a nice arete and a beautiful view from the top of the route.

Ottice Webb said on October 10th, 2015
I agree, been on it with Willy and those moves up top to the shuts are the bizz

Great route! Wasn't that dirty at all. Had some really fun moves on this thing.
