Best of the 3 11d's on this wall. Trust the "horn" :)

I think velvet has better movement, but this one's good too.

Great route for people with endurance problems. Bat hang rest half way up.

The quickdraw on the 4th bolt is kinda jenky. I had to manually close the gate after I clipped it. Be safe and use a personal draw for that bolt. Great fun climbing though!

We removed the first draw from this route. It was absolutely horrendous. I wouldn't leave a draw on the first one.

left draws on bolts one through 4, no draw left on bolts 5 or 6 (anchors have biners). Will leave another draw on bolt 5 next weekend which is the bolt right before the lip. Only reason there's not one there now is because I'm an idiot. Not gonna put one on 6 because it's a move from the anchors on jugs. Short version: If you're gonna climb this, bring a draw with you.

Maybe you should just pull the draw off the first bolt to use up higher? Those first draws become ginsu biners pretty quick.
Spikeddem said on October 29th, 2012
I agree that a permadraw on the first bolt isn't a very good idea for this route.
dustonian said on October 29th, 2012
Fixed draws are a bad idea on the first bolt of any route and should be removed. This draw typically sharpens up most quickly, and it is the spot where the hardest falls tend to occur.
btbradley said on October 30th, 2012
I'll take the first off and leave a draw before the lip next weekend, probably sunday.
btbradley said on November 5th, 2012
Draws now up on bolts 2 through 5

Finally sent Horn today and was stoked to do it as the first climb of the day. So much fun. Thanks to Brian for getting me on this route.
