This might be one of the best sandbags in the red. 10b? Not!

this was just a fun climb. A total blast. But easier than 10c.

Easier than stool sample. When you have done it a couple times 10b feels right on. A good route to run laps on to work endurance.

No kidding, Wes!

Despite the name, this is a good route.

the chain links on the anchors are wearing thin.

you have to do these climbs a couple of times to get the flow. then they're not too bad.
Wes said on May 26th, 2008
This is a fun "getting back into shape" route. Big moves and big, tendon friendly holds on step rock. Short. Little bit of a move up high. Nice to do laps on. And, yep, it is pretty fun once you get it dialed.

Steep and fun with big moves and big jugs! Another climb in that section of Torrent that I am in love with. Deserves more than 2 stars.
