This was wayyyy harder than Pogue Ethics. Maybe cuz it was wet.

Well here is why the route is sooooo short. The holds at the time seemed non existant, and well I star-drilled the bolts by hand (no motorized action) plus this was my first line I ever bolted at the Red and well we all have to learn somewhere. I agree on the pile factor to an extent, but at least I learned something. There are a few cool moves on the wall though.

Even bad climbing is better than a day at work.

The route wasn't that bad. It's short, the moves didn't really flow all that well for me but I would do it again.

got on it a few years back and hated it, got on it this year and thought it was a fine route. a little short and a little chossy, but had some cool holds and some nice stemming rests. if you have done the rest of the sport routes at Phantasia, it isn't a bad idea to give this one the five minutes it takes to climb it.

I liked the climb. A bit pumpy at the last two bolts. One of the bolts is a spinner (I think it is number two). One has to fight the sketched out feeling from rusty bolts. Some of these have seen better shinier days.

i think the route is fun but one of the anchor bolts was rusty as hell (the left one) it was making me very nervous

It wasn't until two years after I first lead this route that I came back for the send. I hated it as much now as then. What a P.O.S.

it's probably not worth the effort - but it looks like this is original hardware from 1993 and may be in need of replacement. not a fun route for me.

Not as bad as people say. Or I was expecting something worse than the curbside 10's and it was not. It does have a really bad and remote location.

DO NOT GET ON THIS ROUTE> Until hardware is replaced; Anchor bolts are rusted through. Although the flake right protects well.

Did it today. Same as it was when I first did it right after Tony & Richard put it up. Spinner...Stacked washers on one of the bolts...but the rust is new. *grin* Fun. (No, for real!! Please don't fix the gear. I love old, dangerous routes like this one, and the ones with Porter's rusty, old angle-iron hangers. Like long, scary runouts, it's an important part of the character of southern rock climbing.

Dude this climb is no pile. It looks like a pile, but who gives a shit. The moves are fun and the holds are pretty solid. After the ledge at 1/3 height the moves are just as good as any of the same grade. When everything else is taken and it usually is on the weekends thanks to the routesetter for putting this up because at least there is something else to climb/warmup on that is 9 times out of 10 going to be open. Why would anyone want to climb past the anchors? The only choss on the route is 5 ft to the left of the route and everything above the anchors. Hmm so why did they stop the route where they did? Um open your eyes... it's shitty above the anchors.

Smelt pissy up top. We aren't in California and I was wondering why it would smell such a way. Maybe the rusty anchors made me tinkle in my pants when I saw them and I was just smelling myself.

Not a bad climb, the bolts and anchors are super rusted and probably need to be replaced soon. I think I remember the second bolt being a spinner.

2nd bolt is still a spinner...but other than that it wasn't nearly as much of a pile as I was hoping for....

My memory of pogue ethics and creature feature is fading cuz i had so much fun on this route, maybe it has cleaned up some over the years. The rock features, scenery and movement was cool, would be well worth bolt replacement, the second bolt spinner is still a spinner the third bolt washer stack is now a rust glob

I actually really enjoyed this route. Short yes, but original for Phantasia. Not sure if it was necessary, but I did a big cross move in the middle of the route that felt soo right!
