Comments: Great route and well bolted. Pretty stout though. I think I'd have to give it a 10c rating. Hard start and then another cruxy spot up around the 4-5th bolts. Cool hard to read moves.

Comments: I used to work for JHMG in the 70's and 80's and lived in a tent cabin out at the base of Apres Vous. Rock Springs buttress was our guides favorite place to work and also crag on our days off. We all did a lot of routes there BITD. complete with tower 3 stops whenever we wanted.
