great route. like soul ram but a bit trickier in a spot and a bit dirtier due to the lack of traffic. possible to clean it coming down from the king me. i don't know why it doesn't get more traffic.

Anonymous that said Out on a Limb is like Soul Ram, could you PM me some Beta? I have always wanted to do this route but have no clue in the "tricky" spot.

Holy Crap this thing is a bad ass for 12c. I loved this route. So much variety in the holds and movement. Stop waiting in line for Orange Juice this thing is way harder and rad.

nice send!... "way harder" huh?

Super sick crimping! Great bouldery moves. Requires the planets to be lined up perfectly to send. Hardest face climb at the Red....deserves more traffic but the lack of a "chalk highway" may have something to so with it, but the holds are all there, all be it small, they're there! Good luck and have fun :-)

Amazing climb, solid crux, catch it with the chalk washed off for the full experience
