A close contender with Addiction for the best route on the wall. Begin left of the 6 foot high roof with a blocky right hand and reach high for a left crimp to get started. Solid holds with a couple of solid cruxes deliver a solid pump.

Very cool route, and it's pretty to look up at the long diagonal line it creates too.

Very good climbing, gotta be the best route at the crag

Great line Kipp, from start to finish.

Great fun, love the route, love the work being done down here, things are looking great. Anyone know anything about what the heck is going on up above this crag? It looks like they are cutting down trees and just letting them fall over the edge. There are a couple that look particularly problematic over these last three routes. I guess just keep your eyes open if you get a windy day.
Jeff said on February 13th, 2015
All that clear cutting up top and pushing things over was done years ago.

Really fun route with some big moves down low, interesting rests and a hidden jug out left (just when I needed it) before the run to the chains!

I whipped while going for the clipping jug above the anchors yesterday. I hit the dead tree with my left but cheek during the fall. The tree broke which led to total chaos, as the tree was holding several snags that were leaning down from the top of the cliff. The area now looks like a war zone (chain saws required). No body was seriously hurt. It could have been a lot worse. Two days earlier the cliff was buzzing with people. Two children were playing with toy trucks in the dirt that is now ground zero...

big jug block before the undercling/sidepull move was moving today, might come off soon. make sure your belayer is standing to the side

Bradhull: how high up and near which bolt is this loose block? Thanks.
bradhull said on March 23rd, 2020
right beneath the perma, which is maybe bolt 5?
