This is one of the most unique and fascinating lines in its class and offers what may be the steepest and wildest ride you will ever encounter for a route of its grade. Begin on a nice, flat belay ledge and tackle the left-angling line of hand sized pockets leading up to a photo finish anchor clip. Your belayer may get vertigo trying to keep up with exactly which way you are climbing. Another line is bolted left of this route but no details are known at this time.
Moves: Pumpy
Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Downpour

this thing is amazing. i've always thought five stars should be reserved for just a handful of lines in any area and this is definitely one of the miller fork five star routes.
