this route is like old popcorn. in many ways it's good, but you could definitely go for something better.

It's strange. I never even realized this short line was here until I saw draws on it today. It's worth doing if there are draws on it. Nothing spectacular though.

Rebolted July 2012. Anchor moved up into the obvious hueco. Top crux is really cool!

rock quality isn't great in places, but i think the movement on this is much more enjoyable than ale-8, chainsaw, and most of the other low 12's 'round these parts.
