Awesome send One-Fall. A lot of rain, some thunder and lightning, and no giving up. On my list of top 3 most impressive sends I've seen.

Huge thanks to Mike Wheatley for replacing the old sketchy wedge bolts on this route!

Wow, a bit of everything on this classic line! Bouldery start, a few steep finger locks, small crimps, crazy high steps on small feet at head level, and balancy smears with bad slopers. 5 star route when it's clean. Brush it up and send it! Harder than Swahili and So Low, easier than Purdy Mouth, and awesome climbing the whole way.
