Comments: For clarification: the start begins with a decent left hand edge and right hand at the beginning of the large, flat rail. There appears to be someone working on a lower start which is comprised of smaller crimps and edges.

Comments: This route is incredible. The green and yellow lichen and rock quality are worth the extra little hike. I took Mohammad Jafari to this route, and he was able to send it 4th try on his first day on the route. He confirmed the grade of 14a.

Comments: Checked out he left finish into Twitch, and it did not seem worth it to me. Huge jugs which I don't think would add any difficulty and weird rope drag.

Comments: Super fun power endurance. I am also curious about the extension out left into the Twitch anchors. Has anybody given that a go?

Comments: Yeah, it is a very nice looking line, but the rock is not the best. The moves are not super fun, but it's an ok warmup for some of the stuff in the cave.

Comments: After the rockfall, this route has become more difficult. Some more holds broke after that even, so now it is not quite as good.

Comments: I believe Jeff Lowe put up the FA, but I could be mistaken.

Comments: Jared Ogden, Travis Spitzer FA.
Ice rarely forms enough to do this route.

Comments: I did route all natural before the bolts went in. Probably better now, however.
