Although it seems steep at first, this climb is rather tame and has enormous jugs in the form of flat shelves the entire way (except for the tricky move to get off the deck).

This route should not be passed up by any 5.11 climber!

For those curious, you need 4 draws for this route- two for the first two bolts, two for the anchor. the rest have climb tech perma-draws, making this route very easy to clean if the leader back-cleans the second bolt after clipping the 3rd.

According to Red River climbing, this has 9 bolts, not 7. Ive also heard that as of November 2009 the second and fifth bolts are a bit sketchy, anybody know if those have been replaced as of 2014?

You only need two draws for this now, theres biners left on the anchors. Be sure to get creative with your rests, theres a surprising number of sit down ledges if you look, those saved me on my onsight

The ground at the start has eroded severely over the past 8 years or so. Use cheater blocks to keep the grade at .11a. The crux is now the start (stick clip highly recommended). After that, the climb is .10c/d jug haul to the top.

This route has been recommended to me for awhile now by different people. Happy to say it lived up to the hype!! Tricky start to hero moves on steep jugs! Throw a heel, shake it out and tackle the head wall to the anchors! Take a victory whip!
