Good climb...get on it when you have a chance and it's dry. Way better than Ale-8, Chainsaw or SKWIBA.

That one UFO hold is cooler than all the figure 4s to be had on the Undertow

couple of the glueins could have been moved to better clipping positions to the left.
dustonian said on July 20th, 2012
thanks for the worthless comment... feel free to jump in and rebolt a route if you're so inclined. you should have climbed this route with the original placements, it was pretty heinous.

Relax Dustonian, Piggy is just validating why he didn't send ;). This is just standard operating practice for sport climbers in the Red.
dustonian said on July 20th, 2012
Ironically, clipping the original 2nd bolt was the full-on crux move when I did this thing!

the bolts felt very well placed today! Are they moving frequently? If it's dry, this route deserve a try.
