Fun bouldery pocket climbing!

Anchor placement make for some rope rape. Would be of higher quality if the anchors where lowered (IMO). The upper part after the roof looks like mud but isn't. Well maybe it is mud but petrified. Hard mud. Cool moves on hard mud to a thank god mud jug!

Super good route! Found the crux piss hard. I was on Belly the day before and it felt easier. Not sure if being day 3 on made a difference....but IMHO either Belly may need a downgrade or this needs an upgrade. I'll try again a bit more fresh and see if that makes a difference. This one is worth climbing again anyways.

no, being tired changes nothing. 3rd day on is the same as 1st day on, you suck on any of those days Ian

FWIW I had to talk Nico out of 12a... which seems ridiculous

cute subtle ? spray.. you can climb 5.12B 3rd day on!!!! You'll still never be 1/2 the man your mother is.
climb2core said on October 6th, 2015
Yeah, well your mama so fat you have to grease the door frame and hold a twinkie on the other side just to get her through.

I agree this thing is as hard as Belly of the Beast. Stout 12b is probably a good rating though ;)

Belly is one of the Red's softest "12c"s

Hence the possible "downgrade" comment
Raiden said on November 16th, 2015
Excellent route. I agree with the previous comment on the anchor - very hard on your rope while lowering or cleaning.

I forgot how good this one is. Maybe the best climbing at the cliff.

The 6th or whatever the second to last bolt is with the perma on it was spinning a little. Noticed it while I was cleaning and did not have a wench to tighten it with. If anyone is heading that way and wants to tighten it, if not I will try to do it next time I am out there.

I don't usually side work the RRC anonymous trolls, but I gotta say I agree with this one, we need bolt Wenches! Replace that anchor wench! Tighten that bolt, wench! No longer bolt fairy, now we'll have a wrench wench.
