The juggier and steeper of the lines on this wall. Reach high for a deep horizontal to pull over a small roof and into a quick pockety section. After that, enjoy the fun flow of good old fashioned Red River steep jug hauling complete with a no-hands double knee bar rest. Remember though, another trait of those old fashioned jug hauls is to spit in your face right at the chains.

This one puts a smile on my face every time I climb it. Don't cheat yourself at the anchors and clip from below. Throw for it and I promise you won't be disappointed.

I didn't put em there. I added one when I first bolted it but that count seems high.

10 bolts at least. I thought I had two extra draws, based on guidebook description, and I ended up having to grab a draw from a lower bolt in order to have something for the anchors.

Also, the last bolt was a spinner. Nothing wrong with it, as far as I could tell. I hand-tightened it, didn't have a wrench. But maybe someone with a wrench could give it a little tightening soon.

Looks like you didn't send yet. Come back for the tick and bring a wrench this time! ;)
