If anyone has seen "The Players" the route Adam sent (that Kenny bolted a few years ago) shows Chris Sharma attempting it. The route is named "The Golden Ticket" and from the descriptions I've heard of the moves it sounds insane. I remember Kenny talking about the high boulder problem and it sounds like something you'd have to work repeatedly if it were just on the ground. But this thing is about 70 feet up after a few more sick boulder problems with what looks like no rest at all.

I don't think Adam's big on the internet thing so I'm posting all I know about the route. I'm not positive on this but I think it's probably now the hardest route that has been sent in the Red.

Excellent vision Kenny and sick climbing Adam.

I got to visit the chocolate factory for the first time this past rocktoberfest weekend. Amazing wall, and these two routes on the main wall are some of the most inspiring lines I have ever seen. Strong work adam, congrats!

I saw Adam on it a few years ago. THe route is one of the sickest things I have seen. That upper boulder problem looked very hard after a 5.14 approach. I would love to hear a play by play.
