This route was a lot harder before the big tree fell at the base in 1992 and eliminated the first roof moves as the earth was raised there.

don't know if i enjoyed any part of this route. i was suckered into it, though, by being told it's a walk of a 5.9.

I am never touching this route again. Never, never, never! It was fun being scared though.

a big tree at the base? i would have killed for that extra help! no tree now :-( i tried the roof and then gave up and aided to the first bolt. it was fun on TR but seems like it would be a heady lead. the bottom of the route stays dry after rain and the top of the route dried off within a very short amt of time after the sun came out.

Another RRG/Military Wall route where we don’t count the opening moves in grading the route (see Sunshine, Moonbeam). How do climbers 5’ 6” and under keep from bashing their brains in out of frustration? Oh well, fun route, the intro is harder than 10b, the rest is easier, but heady. Applying the Military Wall algebra the overall result if 10b+/- ish. Enjoy and just campus.

I'm pretty sure it was easier before the big tree fell.

Pretty good route for the in, there aren't that many great 10's at the Red, this is a decent one.

Are you joking? There are a bunch of good 10's in the Red... and this is not one.

A knee-bashing good time.

Not bad, sort of slabby,

I hate aretes, but this wasn't bad. Sketch start for sure. Sorry, I broke a good foot in fall 2010

Anchors could be replaced in the near future, especially the left chain.
