Just right of a flake leading to a thin seam begins this line. It is marked by a large nose flake feature near the top. A bit of creativity will gain you a no-hands rest here, which you may need for the crux run for the chains. A nearly unavoidable encounter with a big, scary hold awaits at the end.
Moves: Pumpy
Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Downpour

A must do route. Pretty much a jug haul from bottom to top with 1 long move shortly after you exit the rest. Thanks Cromper!

Maybe my brain is just fizzled out, but I can't think of another route so full of giant jugs. Super fun route. It's gonna be an exciting time for whoever yanks off the final and possibly biggest jug on the route just before the anchors.

the rest stance was my favorite part..probably one of the most unique sport rests in the gorge.

Heel hookin jug swingin goodness. Great warm up since the hard moves are up top after a no hands rest.

Seems like enough big fatties have wobbled up this the big jug should have ripped off by now. Looks like it's gonna rip off but psyched it hasn't. One of my favorites.
