This climb has some of the best movement in the Red. You can think different, but you would be wrong.

How can wild yet tasty be 12a if this is a 12b.

12b for certain, get some endurance.

Watch the draw at the top of the roof. the gate is very sticky. I clipped it, did the high crux, got into the jams and went to clip the next bolt only to realize the rope was out of the draw! AHHHH!

maybe the best sport route i've ever done

Amazing route. Totally different kind of pump than Chainsaw or Ale 8-1 for all the lactic acid connoisseurs out there.

This thing is the most beautiful piece of rock I think I have ever seen

This route has the most fun moderate after moderate boulder problems of any route I have done. Makes you smile all the way!

This feels for sure like 12c until you unlock the resting beta. If you can make good use of the rests, it goes at 12b for sure.
Willy said on May 19th, 2014
By far the most beta intensive pump fest I've ever touched. Sport climbing doesn't get much better than this

One of the best routes in the Red hands down.
