One of the bolts up high is in a complete shit place to clip from.

Nice. Agree, much nicer when draws are hung.

Sorry you didn't like the bolt placement up high Willy! Some clips are more pumpy than others. You may have been missing a hold, or been in a position that wasn't the easiest possible. I agree that it's a lot easier once the draws are on. Glad you liked the line and the grade, pigsteak! I am looking for an ultra classic route to call "37 years of climbing". This is my 37th year :-) LMK if anyone knows of a hidden gem somewhere- thanks! <3

Pumpy clips on 5.9 slab bolted on rappel in the RRG? I don't think I'm the one who was missing something

Pretty cool route. A couple thought provoking moves.

I am calling this thing Truther 2.

A couple tough moves at the top. More like 10b I think. Technical route but fun.

Agreed, weird bolt placement. Too bad you Mike didn't bolt the thing like a sane person, pretty fun movement.

These three climbs are all fun and worth getting on imo, just maybe not if they're at your limit due to the bolting.

I climbed this route yesterday. I’ll “never forget” it.
