Comments: WARNING - LOOSE BLOCK: Did the route last weekend. There is a gnarly loose block near the top of the first pitch (If you stretch it all way to the ledge in the dihedral, way past the edgehogs anchor). It is in a 6-8" crack in the dihedral, about 15ft below the ledge at the top of the first pitch. Long, lean, and arrow shaped, the block is about the size of a large bread loaf, and is determined to launch out of the crack. I used a cam to keep it wedged in there while my 2nd came up.

Comments: My partner and I replaced the hanger on the 2nd pitch yesterday. There are no threads protruding from the nut - the bolt just wasn't long enough, unfortunately.

You guys owe me $3.50. :)

Comments: I climbed this the same day as Murf. I wasn't sure what it was, but it proved to be a pretty nice little diversion while in the area.

At 5'6", I had to s-t-r-e-t-c-h quite a ways to clip the bolt off the ledge...but it's all good.

Comments: I'd been eyeballing this climb for awhile. I've never seen anyone climb this route...which is surprising to me now that I've climbed it. A very, very nice route that I'll be repeating again and again. Highly recommended.

Comments: Really fun, long route and great confidence booster for the grade (to be honest though, I'd call it a 10c or d with my hands).
