Begins behind the giant boulder. Phenomenol moves, mega-steep, fat jugs, lots of climbing, and a well defined crux. What more could you ask for in a mid-range 5.11? One of the best in its class.

Unbelievably good.

A true test of the 5 star police's adherence to a mission of promoting the 3 star max...

it's the new "little wing"
dustonian said on March 30th, 2015
the 3-star limit policy only applies to your routes

hey, 3 stars in the Red is like getting a C at Harvard.

Lives up to the hype.

5 stars? nah, thought the boulder problem was kind of awkward sucky. climbing leading up to it was fun . the other 11s here are as good or better. unsolicited subjective whinery <-- better route name too

Awesome route with a tough boulder problem at the roof. If you are looking for just some jug paddling, move along.

This is 11c if every other 11c I've done get's downgraded to 11b.

Based on your spray list, the other three you've done in the RRG are very soft

I've never been so turned on by a route before. Loved it!

After that last comment it sounds like a re-name is in order: vasoactive intestinal polypeptide

Probably my favorite I’ve been on at the infirmary. Fun jug pulling with distinct crux

Tightened down the third bolt (first perma) the other day as it was practically ready to fall out of the hole. Don’t forget your wrenches people ;)

Thanks wsimek, you're my hero. I'll never forget my wrench again

Heads up, the quicklink on the second perma (crux) is pretty worn. Gonna report it. Be cautious. Probably good for many more whips but it’s hard to say.

Disregard my last comment. It was actually meant for Ebola. Turns out I hopped on it by mistake lol. Once a gumby, always a gumby.
