Elevator Pitch 5.10a (Sport) ****

First Ascent: Art Cammers, Dustin Stephens in 2014
Length: 80ft
Bolts: 9 (report bad bolts/anchors)

The first bolted line encountered, just right of a crack, as the trail meets the wall. A challenging intro move buys you a ticket on this fun ride. Super solid rock, well bolted, long, and pumpy make this one of the better lines for the grade.
Moves: Pumpy
Descent: Draws
Stays Dry: Light rain
Owner: RRGCC

The crag warm-up: An elevator pitch is a summary in search of funding used to quickly propose a new product, service, or organization. An 'Elevator Pitch' should be no longer than the average elevator ride (30 sec - 2 min).

sorta like 'date night' at the Cammers household?

Nice work Sir Farty, super fun!

Best 10a I've done in a long time. Nice intro move, solid rock, and just enough overhang to keep it out of the 5.8-5.9 range.

The start looks harder than it actually is. 10a is correct for this pretty easy climb. Rock quality is poor,but it's at least as strong as shortbread.. I broke some of it off but it didn't taste real good.

The rock needs more traffic. This route will surely clean up ... like all the rest do. At least the thinner stuff that you start on will likely survive the traffic. I am sure there will be breakage for the next 2 years depending on the traffic. Miller Fork is becoming a destination for the Red River climber so the traffic will show up and the route will get better.

Agreed, this route has good rock quality, it's just new.

Sharp and kind of boring. Length and view make up for it.

not trying to be a dick, but i'd strongly disagree with the one of the best of the grade talk.

It's cleaned up quite nicely now. No sharp holds to speak of. Interesting boulder problem leads to some of the best jug hauling out there for the grade. Just enough pump to provide a decent challenge. Beware of a possible snake den in the pockets just before the low angle finish. The critter left behind some skin to motivate you into moving your ass to the anchors
