Comments: Great under-the-radar route! Baby angle on crux pitch, but no other fixed gear. 5.9 slab also quite spicy and getting close to R.

Comments: This climb is unreal. The FA team did an amazing job of finding, cleaning, and equipping this route. I can't recommend this climb enough!

Comments: The route is great, and the climbing is enjoyable. FYI: clipping the second bolt seemed to be the crux, and blowing that clip would likely lead to you decking onto the ledge. Your belayer (if still on the ground) cannot see you until you emerge from the second bolt above the ledge. An easy way to avoid this is to go in direct to the 1st bolt on the head wall and pre-clip the second bolt.

Comments: I have small fingers, but 12- seems a bit much. Sandbag alert! It would be way harder than that if you have big fingies.

Comments: I'm 5'3, so for me, it felt like 12a. I had to use small feet to get choked up on the sloper and then had to jump. Enjoyable movement.

Comments: First changing corners is definitely the crux, especially if you have small hands and purple juniors is your worst size ;) But, you get rewarded with a few good thin hand jams in the relentless layback.

Comments: The rumor is that this climb was named after the late Micah Dash. The neighboring climb, the hostess, was named after his longtime girlfriend, Amelia Patterson.

Comments: I did this climb yesterday. I placed a blue TCU, a gray TCU, and a small nut, I think a BD size 3 nut. The gray TCU and the BD size 3 nut go right next to each other in the small parallel crack where the hard climbing starts. If you place them right, they are bomber. It felt hard for the grade!

Comments: Just as a heads up, the second pitch is a little scary now due to the fact that a questionable nut has been wedged into the perfect TCU placement above the piton. The nut is about 1/3 a way in, I guess some people tried to get it out, but then stopped....
