still goes... probably 12a/b with a definite crux now. Definitely an R rated climb up top on some easier moves. Clean on TR and use your partner's rope if you can. Not really sure I'd recommend the route to anyone though, probably depends on how I felt about them.

Went specifically to try this route today, and found it red tagged. Is it closed because bolting is not safe? I'm sure there is a good explanation.

Andrew is bolting a variation that starts on Beeper.

Figured there was an explanation. Thanks JR.

Sorry about that Lee. The red tag isn't actually on Beepers bolts but the first bolt on the variation. Either way both routes kind of suck, but my variation is definitely better, but it is not that hard to bolt a route that is better than Beeper. Ray said that I shouldn't be so pessimistic, but lord knows he has never found rock he doesn't like. So I hope yall like the variation, as it may be better than I think it is.

the first three bolts of this are pretty fun although a couple holds are pretty fragile. going from three to four is tough (12b?) and four to five is kinda tough. the top dihedral is run out w/ a ledge below you'll hit if you mess it up. retrobolting and a chisel would make this route worth climbing

Top dihedral will stay wet for couple days after rain. I'd say it's worth trying but it felt harder that 11d.
