When the climber becomes 2/3 of the way up, grab a camera: You will get great photo ops.

Really good route, first pitch is more overhung then you think!

Maybe the best route of it's grade in the red? Short but very cool. Worth the walk up to the cliff.

Fun route! The extension didn't look very appealing.

Hand jammin at its finest. Got my left hand stuck thumbs down about 2/3 up. Thought I was gonna have to leave it. Lol! This climb is just around the corner from Drive By Crag. We did it just as the light was fading...perfect end to the day!

The extension is really fun. Thought 10d/11a. Gear beta in MP tick list if interested. First time I've had to heel hook above my head to get a piece in. The FA should come up with a name, because this is just as good as the first half. Easily done as one pitch.

Or just add a page for the extension.

I take it back. After climbing Rebar, this extension feels like a 10c, unless Rebar is secretly an 11c.
