The FA isn't known for his route naming skills but he sure can drill them holes. Inconsistent but still a decent line. 5.10 climbing leads to a side-pulling sloper pop off of bad smears to a decent edge. Next dive into the abyss and come out at the chains.
Moves: Bouldery
Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Downpour
Owner: RRGCC

Worse route name, ever. Thank goodness, the climb is better than the name ;) As with many lines on this wall, sloper cruxes will be condition dependent.

One of my favorite boulder problems anywhere in the Red. Such a fun move!!! Four star route instead of 5 only because the climbing too and after the boulder problem is pretty easy. Wow Kipp and Ray, great job on this wall!

I did a bunch of other routes at Miller Fork the same day; in comparison, this route is SOLID 12b. Pretty sure I did the beta correctly too.
