Probably cuz they are the salty dawgs. Is that really on your top list of things to complain about?

Fun if you like dirt and lichen. The first 2 bolts are harder than any one move on the 10s to the right. Definitely eases up after you get to the ledge.

Can always count on usmcmars to go climb every new easy route as soon as they go online and then like clockwork immediately turn around and bitch about how dirty/breaky/incorrectly graded it is haha

It's the worst when brand new routes aren't immediately spotless.

I apologize for not adding little winks and smiley faces at the end of my insensitive review. I am sure it will be a 5 star climb someday. All better now?
