Comments: No worries. The bolt probably just needed to be tightened down originally, and then maybe someone took a big lead fall on it, breaking a piece of rock around the hole and bending the bolt possibly. It did seem a little broken around the hole when I was up there yesterday. Either way, it's replaced and safe to climb on now.

Comments: I replaced the crux bolt this morning. It is weird why someone would take a bolt, hanger, and permadraw and not replace it or post about it here.

Comments: Draws were stolen on this again and also a few on Mission Impossible. Big bummer.

Comments: Fun climbing on the roof, I was able to climb to the lip of the roof (being 5'10'' helps) on my second try but was stumped when I had to move off of the crimps over the lip. Getting the right foot established on the face above the roof is hard, need better beta. Nice job cleaning and sending this thing, Mark!

Comments: Yes, Alan had not yet finished the route before the book came out. We had actually talked before he bolted it about the name and whether or not to bolt it. The first pitch has been around for years, nameless, until Alan decided to finish this route off and bring it all the way to the top of the wall. Nice work, Alan!

Comments: Thanks, Elijah! I love the crimping on this route, though it is short and I am biased....

Comments: Ya, it's a fun variation and easier for those of us who can't stick that move yet.

Comments: Nice send, Chris! Ya, that move is now definitely hard and height-dependent, great job figuring it out. I am going to settle for a slightly easier variation, going left at the broken hold, instead of straight up which would make it around 13c, instead of 13d.

Comments: This route felt hard, definitely not my style, but felt harder than anything else at the cliff. Does anyone know what the variation just left of this is? It's to the right of Mofo and has black bolts.

Comments: Either way, it's a cool route! I really liked the movement climbing over the first bulge. It's a great find, and I only wish it were longer.

Comments: This route is really good for a short, bouldery route. It has just two hard moves, and I found a secret heel hook that made them very doable. It may be a bit soft for the grade given, fun route though!

Comments: Great route! 13a feels about right, an interesting crux moving up past the last bolt.

Comments: Patrick, I thought the variation up left is a cool way to keep things in the 12b area, since you don't pull any of the crux moves up higher. Pretty cool variation. Not sure who bolted it.

Comments: This routes packs a punch! It's mostly excellent 13- crimping, aside from the two or three HARD moves at the top that make it a serious testpiece for the canyon. Nice job on putting this thing down, Mike!

  • After sending this route, I still think it's an awesome, 4 star classic. The crux might come easier if you're taller, linking that final move from the ground was brutal.

Comments: Thanks for bolting the route in the first place, Jay! I look forward to many more years of projecting routes and variations on this side of the wall, including Mission Impossible itself. The right side of Wall of the '90s has some best climbing around.

Comments: Sounds like Layton Kor scrambled up a lot of this stuff long before anyone else got to it.

Comments: I'm sure a lot of people have meandered up the slab before bolts, but probably not the exact part of the roof, and pulling over the roof is what makes this route special.

Comments: Chris,
I warmed up on this today and didn't find any chipped footholds or change. Still all natural from what I saw.
