the route was good but my tall body had a hard time hiking my feet up for the short compact moves of the crux * in my book

this is quite possibly the worst route at the motherlode besides purdy mouth. whoever bolted this should try stuffing their eyes with cheeze whiz and filling their mouth with vagisil and blister-ridden black cock because it would be way more fun than this thing.

Wow, I just might have to try that. I thought the both of the afore mentioned routes were pretty good. Cheese whiz/blistered black cock et al must be pretty good. So, are you speaking from experience?

About the name. It was all out of respect for KB. She is a friend. The first ascentionist (me) had the dubious pleasure of being the first guy who had his delusions of greatness irreperably crushed by a thirteen year old KB back in the day when she came and totally hiked my proj at the time (not this route). She has had my eternal respect as a climber and (more importantly) as a humble, gracious person ever since.

I love the name of this route. It harkens back to the olden days of Lode climbing when we youngsters all had crushes on its namesake even though she climbed several orders of magnitude harder than we even dreamed. Hm, 13 years later and this route is still too hard for me.

At 5'8 with an even ape, this is about as close to 13c as a route can be. In fact, harder than some 13c's. So, so good. Amazing, continuous climbing.

Gorgeous rock climb, both in its movement and aesthetics. One more inch would have made things much easier. That's what she said.
