decent climbing to a gorgeous topout and one of the best views in the holler. don't fall on the slab.

Lower section is mad fun, bring a 4 and 5. The upper section though? Super dirty, questionable rock, and a notable lack of pro. I got a few low horizontal placements in dirty eyebrows that were not confidence inspiring, with no sign or more to come as I headed up and to the right. So without adequate gear I bailed and rapped from a small tree off to the right in a small vegetated hueco of sorts. I like adventure climbing as much as the next trad dad, but this was too much on the "not worth it" side of my boldness meter. If the FAs are cool with it I'd be happy to add a bolt or two on the slabs and give her a good brushing in the process to make this a bit safer, not unlike Indecision.

Fine by me Mike, we really just used this route to get up top and put an anchor on Dew Point, as this part of the CF is difficult to get up to from below. I liked this route though I know most people wouldn’t, and I kind of like the idea of having at least one spicy ground-up trad climb at the crag, but if you’re willing to clean up the upper slab then it’s definitely worth the cost of a bolt or two… there are a couple horizontal placements up there tho if you hunt around.

This is definitely on my radar. Sounds like the FA was similar to Down The Rabbit Hole, so looks like the crag has a "couple" of spicy ground up trad lines.
