"Typhoid Mary"... 10a or so to the first anchor, nice warmup. Extension will probably be around 12a.

This one is now open, nice 10a warm up to first anchor, bouldery 11d/12a extension to the second

Fun warm up to a funky boulder problem on the extension.

A bit harder than it looks from the ground. Traverse at the top was not expected. Didn't try the extension today.

Interesting route for sure. I broke a jug at the bottom, I think the start is a little tougher than 10a now....

How do I get those sweet points for the extension? BTW the extension is a bit choosy but steep fun. The neighboring routes in this grade range are quite a bit better though....

Route itself was not bad, but the bolts did not feel like they followed the line, especially last bolt and anchors
Bakdunis said on November 19th, 2018
Some of the bolts definitely felt out of the way, forces you to awkwardly stray a bit. Between the last bolt and the anchors is a decent mental crux.
