Comments: Oh and sorry about the shit job with my first attempt on the first anchor bolt. I f&*^'d up the bolt and had to pull it and make a new hole.

Comments: If you go up to the top of the block on the next route to the right (with a little OW grunt), you can TR this thing. My buddy Lee thought solid 12 to 12+. whew.

Comments: GEAR BETA!!

The gear description of this route is dangerously wrong. Those are 2x old school #5s in the description AND a you need a big bro. You will deck if you fall in the large middle section unless you have a big bro. I had to stop mid-route, hang on for dear life, and drop a line in order to bring mine up.

This is my gear beta (new sizes):

2x #3s for the start, 2x #5s, #4 big bro (blue), 2x #6. Then maybe a 5 or 4 above when you finally get to make ... more >>

Comments: I would add that if you have large knees (and even calves), you will have a HELL of a time getting the top crux. I was doing a bizarre hand stack with zero feet and humping the hands up. I wasn't able to get a knee or even a calf in until I was nearly at the chains. 5.11 for me.

Comments: Climbed it again today. I think I may actually be getting worse at climbing. This climb is some kind of terrible misery that can only be appreciated when looking down at your partner and laughing like some kind of crazy person.

I was on Crack of Fear two weeks ago and found it to be 'easier' than this.

Comments: In order to get the second ascent, do I have to buy a 2002 Mercury Sable? Or can I use a 1999 Toyota Corolla?
