Please don't bolt this too, like Pulling Pockets!
SCIN said on November 4th, 2008
Oh, no worries. You see, when a crack is bolted the bolt putter inners usually put the bolts on the outside of the crack so your black magic springy jammies and widgets will still fit inside the crack.

This should be bolted and downgraded to 10b.

I thought Terry demonstrated that this needed neither bolts nor gear. Still, we should bolt it because it is the perfect warm up for Ro Shampo.

Just solo it to warm up for Ro. Or solo Ro to warm up for this.

Beta warning: Climbs like a sport route, there are three opportunities to use crack technique, 2 of them very useful. Saw another guy on it the same day, used totally different gear beta. The thing sews up. Mid-sized nuts (4-7) are great in the crux as well as some green aliens. Nuts and a single rack will do ya.

Strenuous to place gear at the start. Used two 0.75's at the bottom, then mostly nuts from there.
