I was going to bolt this years ago. Glad to see it get done. Can't wait to ride it.

It was years ago when I started bolting it haha. Still a cool harder one to the right if anyone wants it... probably even share the anchor with this one

Has all the ingredients to be popular. Big moves, steep rock, permadraws, and a short hike to reach it. Surprisingly clean and solid as well for a new route.

Fun route, bring a brush to help clean the remaining sand off. Exercise caution going from 3 to 4 after the bat hang rest, falling wrong in this section can send you head first into the wall like my partner.

Super fun! Permas make this a real treat. Clean and generally choss free now.

This will be five stars once it cleans up a bit more. Great movement. One of the steepest routes I've ever been on

Great for a hot-weather climbing day. Fully in the shade, and not a single "condition-dependent hold" on it.

a couple friends climbed this the other day and said bolts 3 and 4 were in bad shape. said that tightening them down probably wouldn't help. said something about a nut behind the hanger. i witnessed bolt 3 wobble with a flick of the rope. will report elsewhere, but figured i'd mention it here in case someone who knows what they're doing reads this.

A nut behind the hanger? Wtf. Bolts are pretty much new and stainless, Id bet money they just need tightening.

could totally be the case. i got sketched out and didn't go up it, haha. just thought it warranted comment. if i make it back out there w/ a wrench soon i'll take a look.

Probably a good idea to delay getting in this one unless you plan on being the one to inspect and maintain the bolts first.
Anonymous said on June 7th, 2017
Umm, that should be every climber on every route. (Inspect and maintain = try to tighten loose bolts you encounter.). This being a new SS route, almost guarantees it just needs a wrench on it. Ian

Pretty amazing climb.

Great route, countless knee bars and better than I expected. 4stars, but did not feel any harder than air ride equipped. I think it's low 11 Joe Zatek
