see I told you if I "let" Art go first we would not hear the end of about subtle spray...tahnk goodness we had fixed gear for him to clip otherwise he would have gotten the FA...shew, that was close.

Thanks for the day and all your hard work out there Mr. Steak. I enjoyed every minute.

Art, couldnt agree more. Sco and I just said Saturday was one of those days so enjoyable it reminded us why we fell in love with rock climbing. The company and the buzz was superb.

There is one bolt. Below it is a fixed nut on a quick link which was placed around the time of the FA. Check it to make sure it's acceptable to you. Enjoy and remember, Kipp originally wanted to call it 5.8+. The climb is in honor of Shamis: Chronic Obstructive Stripper Disorder.
