Draws should be on this for the next week or two. Thanks to Jimmy Hoctor for the name! More sustained than most of the routes on this wall.

Also thanks to Jeff Neal for the original vision and Tom Scupp for the generous donations of perma draws that should be up soon.

This looks really great. Been spending time on the neighboring routes, and this caught my eye. Glad to see the red tag off; congrats! Looks awesome. Some big hard moves low, some sloping holds and some small and unique pockets. Thanks for the work and the route!

This is one siiick pile. Really fun boulder problems, especially the one guarding the chains.
