Uknown belayer at the base of Static Cling.  Fantastic climbing in the rain.  You may need a kayak to get to the belay, though.

Comments: This route starts on Fistful Corner, not Mini Me.

Comments: I noticed the bolts and anchors on this line a few years ago. We got on it recently and found it surprisingly good. I gave it a generic name hoping the real name would get filled in. With Wall Street getting so busy these days, it is nice to know there are some good routes with no wait.

Comments: A little history: Rob Williams led this route with me following many years ago. He was able to climb this route completely on gear. He did not claim an FA just becauae we figured someone else may have climbed it even though there was no evidence. The bolts were installed many years later by others. So the first known FA is Rob.

The original line climbs the corner the whole way. The bolt at the start is just a variation.

Comments: A quality line. But not even tips in the crack at the start for me making it feel more like at least 9 till the crack opened up a bit after 15 feet or so.

Comments: Poorly placed bolts in my opinion. Ledge fall is possible more than once.

Comments: Very loose bolt at last belay after the traverse. It would be great if someone could bring a wrench up and tighten it. Not only can one loosen the nut easily with fingers, but the stud wiggles.

Comments: A good route that is often overlooked. Start with face climbing, followed by an unusual leaning slot, capped by steep fingers and hands. Lots of variety. All of the difficult moves are well protected. Save a 0.75, 1, and 2 for the final headwall. One #3 Camalot is the biggest piece you might want, although other option exist where the 3 goes. Double 2s, double 1s, and light rack will do.

Comments: We had a 60m and did it anyway. Being very careful and simul rapping for max rope stretch, we were just barely able to reach the ground in the cave with 3 feet of downclimbing.

Comments: I found the location of the second bolt to be quite poor. As it is, one must enter into some of the crux moves before reaching the bolt. With that fin of rock in the landing zone one could easily get seriously hurt trying to make that clip.

It should be moved down about 15 inches. I wouldn't add any bolts though. Just relocate the second. There is a good #0.75 Camalot before the third bolt.
