to the trad purists, get over yourself and clip the first three bolts to enjoy the finger crack overhead.....utterly amazing. clean on back rope.

Super fun. Do it at dusk when the bats are flying.

Really hard to believe no one else has done this stellar line yet!

Mixed lines don't draw crowds. It's the sport climbers that chase. Bolt that crack and the ascents will follow.

I'm looking forward to doing it next time I get up to the Zoo.

fun! unique moves and just enough to feet to keep it at 5.10.

Crux was on the bolted face for me and felt pretty tough for 10b. Killer crack up top though. Fun to TR the mixed route after you lower from the anchors

Crux is between the bolts and felt just a touch easier than Crimping Ain’t Easy.
