One of my favorites! Major thanks to Dylan for taking a whole day to dig out this beast of an offwidth!

Purdy picture. That's the Swole Up OW on the left and the slab of Spork on the right.

Myself and Dean Marker did this route on gear in 2006. Sparse pro in faint crack to left of current bolt, trend right to hands, sling tree, then finish on crack above tree, right of Swole and left of Spork.

Route name is Leech Line. Did it the day our septic system was being put in at cabin. Bottom was spicy but didn't think it was 11a hard.

The 11 hard part is the direct start with the bolt
