Super fun climbing up a cool flake

Super fun! Look for the side pull around the corner when you are at the anchors.
dustonian said on December 8th, 2014
Whoops guess I missed that lol. Also if anyone wants to donate chains to this route that would be cool.

Fantastic fun! Chains would be nice at the anchors.

Are there chains or anchors on this route? What is the descent beta?
Jeff said on May 30th, 2015
As of May 21 a two bolt anchor, each anchor having 2 carabiners. I had to do a bit of a stretch to to reach.

Needs better anchor

Start is deceptively tricky but not powerful. Makes for a good warm up on the way to Graveyard/Morgue

Awesome route! Clipping the chains was tricky though, and If you botch it, you get to feel air between your legs.

Shadow do you want to finish your FA/route and put chains on or does someone else need to finish your work again? If you can't properly finish a route don't start...

or annon could shake the sand out their vajaja and offer a bj to the developer for the rest of the routes hardware $, time and opportunity for them to whine on the interweband well as donate some chain to the could take a pic and hang it next to your participation trophies you received growing up.

Awww poor little delicate snowflake was offended by some anon's comments..... Toughen up buttercup
climbhigh said on February 7th, 2017
Pot meet kettle....not offended at all, shit , ive not put on a harness in 5 years, though I do like snowcones...just calling a douchnozzle as we see them. Dont expect everyone to take care of you, invest in your activity just as the developers did. buttercups, i like that, could you whisper that in my ear occasionally ?

Sorry I didn't make it back to finish the anchor. When you are developing 5+ crags at once it can be tough to get it all finished.
Anonymous said on February 9th, 2017
Maybe develop only 3 or 4 then at a time if you can't handle 5? No need to leave botched jobs hanging about everywhere...
Anonymous said on February 9th, 2017
Anon, an anchor without chains is not a botched job. It's an anchor without chains. So, just add what is missing...It's not that complicated. What a lil biznatch you are

I'm developing five crags of my own, don't have time to fix shadows mistakes too..

Chain on this one now
Anonymous said on February 12th, 2017
Thanks Cromper. Now get to work on buying enough chain for 10 crags.
Anonymous said on February 12th, 2017
Cromper already has his own 5 crags without chain

Maybe Odub will come out of retirement and record an album called 5 crags.
