This is my favorite 10 route at the red - right after AWOL.

Eh, it's allright. It's a two move wonder. Around the 2nd bolt and right before the anchors.

There is a block of loose rock below the second bolt, it is the obvious block potruding from the wall

Great warm-up. Much better than it looks.

pumpy as hell for 10b

I couldn't finish this route... too pumpy for me at the time.

Very pumpy and slightly overhung... beware of all the X-marked holds

Caution: Fifth bolt's a spinner...

There was more than a few spots that had hollow sounding holds on it. Made for "exciting" climb.

whine, whine , whine....climb it and quit complaining.

Pumpy as hell for what it is, the X marked holds are all solid, I pulled on them hard and they didn't budge, otherwise a decent climb, nothing to get too excited about...

someone was way to cautious with the x marked holds
pawilkes said on March 24th, 2008
the big, hollow, creaking sidepull about 2/3 of the way up blew on a friend of mine today and nearly took someone out below. thats one less hold to be worried about

i'm pretty sure it's the hardest 10b i've done yet, but i do suck at overhangs (although i thought i was getting better until today). 2nd to 3rd and slightly beyond was rather beastly, and then of course the moves to the anchors although slightly easier is no gimme. maybe it's easier in cooler weather; otherwise my S$!T is just f'd up!

Stout for the grade. We've all heard it before; it climbs a lot better than it looks. Save something for the top.

Oh man, feel them forearms burn. Decent kneebar-ish rest right before the push to the anchors. First 5.10b onsite.
