Came off just above the first bolt yesterday. Touched ground with rope stretch, but was nearly stopped by the time I got there. This was the crux for me by far (reason for route name?). Eases off after the 4th bolt.

Really nice climb with a great view from the top. Good bolts in good places.

For some reason, I just love this route more than any other in the area. Can't put my finger on why, but I always come back to it. Sustained climbing at the grade, well protected, and fun movement.

I'd say your right Matt. Word on the street is one of the first ascensionists broke his ankle on this route.
