Comments: One of the best 10a's I've ever been on, thanks Kelly. Quite an adventure with the slab, liebacking, crimps/edges, traversing, crack, jugs, high stepping, mantling....use almost all on this route. And love that it's long. Bring an extendable to prevent rope drag on the 5th or so bolt.

Comments: Such a great route - one of my favorites here in BVC.

Led the cruxes; 10a fingercrack at the start was sweet, protects well and gets you amped and awake for the rest of the route. Did this in 3 pitches because I was concerned about rope drag in the main crux after the traverse. 10+, I mean, 10a offset fingercrack on p2 was thuggy and awkward (but super fun).... Had a single rack, doubles from... more >>

Comments: Great climb at the start of a cold day...I just wanted to warm though: I got stung up pretty nicely by a swarm of yellow jackets that my partner accidentally riled up in the brush as we were hiking off. It was where you hike up an obvious trail right after topping out and it parts faintly to the left or right. We took the left - which included passing through the brush that the hornets reside in. Additionally, later I learned of a girl that was stung up two weeks ago on the same hike off aft... more >>

Comments: Ah, makes sense....as it looks very different anyway. :) Cool formation! And even cooler with its remoteness!

Comments: I give you kudos on taking the bruise but the most impressive thing is that vein speaks "hardcore".
