You know why this route is called "Sam Krieg Will Bolt Anything" ? Because Sam Krieg bolted it and got the FA. He has several alternate identities, however, Jeff Moll is not one of them. It's a good route only no one get's on it.

Poor rock quality, poor least favorite of the ones I have done on this wall so far, sorry Sam.

Pretty cool line. Nothing superb but not as bad as Power2U makes it sound.

sooo wet

if not wet, a much better climb than Stella and Berlier's, although probably 12a, not great but underappreciated

Might be hard for the grade. Lower off of the anchors on Jimmy. The chain setup is crummy on this one.

The rock isn't much worse than most of the routes on the 'tow, it just hasn't been climbed as much.

Good route, unfortunate name. Bat in jug at last bolt.

This route seems just as good as the rest on the right side. The rock quality is good, and for the grade given this climb has some pretty powerful movement (not to mention a couple mindful clips at bolts 2 and 3).
