Comments: I found it to be more squirmy than expected, even with my relatively small frame. Definitely worth your time to hoof it up to the crow's nest for this one. Easy, yet exciting!

Maybe I have a good imagination or I was running out of oxygen back in the depths of the chimney, but I felt like I had been transported to Banff or the Ruth Gorge. Your experience may vary

Comments: This is an excellent route! In fact, I thought it was on par with its much more popular neighbor to the right (especially true if it cleans up a little more). Harder moves, but better rests make it a great compliment to the more sustained Romper Room.

Comments: Frustratingly prone to seeping. I've encountered wet holds even after several days without rain. Luckily, most of the key holds seem to be unaffected.

Fantastic movement, with brilliant holds seemingly designed solely to be climbed on.

Comments: I'll give this the noncommittal slash grade. None of the moves are all that difficult alone. There's even a no-hands rest that basically splits it into 2 mini-routes. And yet the final move was seemingly designed to bout many an aspirant. It's just hard to tag a number onto it.

Grade aside, this route is fantastic and very unique. I've never climbed a pitch quite like it. Great movement, technical, powerful, etc, etc, etc.

Comments: I hadn't tried this prior to the break. I ended up hitting the shark's tooth with the L hand. After some trouble, I was able to do the move consistently after dialing in the foot/body position. Still, I think it ended up being the hardest move on the route for me.

Comments: Yup, I'm not sure how it typically forms but it was definitely not R when I did it. Really fun pitch, one of my favorites from this season.

Comments: There is a piton to the left of the ice, about 20-25' up.

Comments: At 5' 8", matching my foot on the start hold wasn't too problematic. I could definitely see that move being really tough for taller folks though. What a fantastic set of moves.
