the first 20 feet is a little chossy and dirty, but most of the climb is good crimps and sidepulls, a little heady, fun though

I was talking smack to myself about the grade of this line until all the holds disappeared and I started pissing my pants.

Ditto what Ray said...don't get cocky until you clip the chains!

well spaced razors for what little may count as holds after midways.

since this routeis located at a crag with so many stellar routes, it is a wonder it ever gets climbed....average rock quality, super easy climbing to a short lived crux.

Enjoyable climbing despite the first 3rd/chossy.

Last 4 bolts are worth climbing the choss to get there.

This route is an absolute pile. It's more like 3/4 sand and 1/4 ok climbing. The bolts look like crap too. Wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy.

This name is offensive to me and should be changed. No room for this in 2020.

Offensive to you? Funny. Ain't much call for slut men with aids.
