20 foot sandy ramp to start with first bolt at the top of it, but it's a decent climb with a cool crux, not as good as Glory Be or the Infidel though

INJURY - there is a thin poplar tree is at the base of this route. climber fell @ 6th clip and was impaled by tree. he's ok but be careful at this clip (or cut down the tree first!) - the draws currently on it are his

Mediocre route with a very cool dyno (for me) crux at mid way
Josephine said on December 26th, 2007
on second thought - maybe "punctured" would be a better word than "impaled" since i'm not 100% sure if the tree came out the other side of his leg or not. regardless it was a pretty serious injury, which is never a good thing. hopefully he's recovered and is climbing again.

worth getting on despite the sketchy base. there's a couple good rest opportunities on the way up. I think the business is in the middle of the climb at the end of the thin moves.

Bolt below the move off of the crimps to the horn is dangerously rusted at the nut.

The bolt protecting the crux is really sketch as of 11/10. The nut is only engaged by a few threads and is rusted in place (tip of the stud is below the face of the nut! The hanger is about .25" away from the wall as well. This thing needs to be replaced.

glue-ins on this one. Not scary at all. Good rock and good climb with less chalk than usual
