Comments: I think the crux of this route is significantly harder than the other two routes. It's short-lived, but it's strenuous, scrunchy, tensiony, and wrecks my shoulders (unless the beta I came up with is totally fucked, which is very likely).

Comments: Sweet thanks bro. I recommend cleaning this route by following rather than lowering.

Comments: I think I used one small cam between bolts one and two, and then for the long runout between 3 and 4 (I think this was the spot? maybe between 4 and 5) there's a flaring horizontal left of the line that takes a brown tricam (sling it long). Maybe one more small cam somewhere in there too.

If this grade is under your limit, the runout climbing is not hard at all and you can do it with just draws if you're willing to accept those risks. If you fuck up though, it would not be good.

Comments: For such a short problem I felt like I did 1000 moves. Pretty fun.

Comments: This is a route I've been wanting to get on sometime soon. So what's the deal with the line? Is it an eliminate? Or are there natural straight up features to climb? Can you clip the bolts from supercrack?

Comments: Man up, grab a small hold, stand tall on an OK foot, and clip that bitch. The second time I got on it, I wised up and had a tall person put the draws in for me.

This is still the best route I've been on so far at Endless. Maybe at the New. Maybe ever.

Comments: You can rap with two ropes from the bolted anchor at the top of the last pitch down to the anchors at the top of pitch 1 of My Route, then rap down to the Lunch Ledge. From the bolt anchors on the left side of Lunch Ledge (which would be Jim Dandy's third pitch anchors), you can rap straight down to another set of bolt anchors, then from those to the ground.

Comments: I left a biner on bolt 3 to help for cleaning on the lower, because that swing out sucks and I was too tired to TR it after climbing it. If anyone wants it, go for it, I bootied it in Italy on my honeymoon last year.

Comments: This climb is real. Aside from the one resting jug, the climbing is so sustained. The face climbing up top is perfect rock climbing on beautiful white rock. A tighter than normal belay keeps you out of the possible butthole impaling tree - but even the falling at bolts 5 and 6 I was still a good 8 to 10 feet above the tree.
