Bolts are not that runout! Very cool and half pads the whole way up! I collected 3 bail binners off it!

way better and more varied than BB, Rather climb it any day.

is there a trick to getting to the third bolt?? I'm short and just couldn't reach, or maybe I suck

between fourth and fifth bolts there is a neat variation to the left as opposed to the crimp ladder to the right, probably same grade

Tough boulder problem between bolts 2 and 3 if you're short...you have to hike your feet up while you're crimping on rounded edges.

Yowza--hard when it's humid! Probably hard when it's not, too. Nice route.

I found this harder than hakuna..brent find it easier. a bit sharp thru the crimps down low, and stays on you.

Not your typical RRG route...vertical and crimpy, but very good. Harder than most 12as at the Motherload...would be 12b at a place like Smith Rock.
