One of the best routes in the Red in my opinion.

... if it was twice as long. Fun while it lasted but way too short to consider one of the best...

One of the best Vert climbs in the Red. The Runout to the anchors in the hueco is not that bad. The holds are good.

Super sweet route, but thought it was more slab than verticle. Good bouldery movement.

I whipped on the crux bolt a bunch a few years ago...doesn't mean they're solid though.

Fun slab route. Either highsteps and strong lockoffs or the greg rueff way: three dynos in a row.

it didn't feel that hard on a cold winter day with good friction, in th summer i'd imagine it woudl be a lot tougher. really neat route though, i wish there was more to it.
