I led this route over the weekend. I stayed in the crack the entire way. When I neared the top, someone asked me what route I was on, but when I told them, they said I was actually finishing on Foolish. Does this route finish on the crack or finish on the to the left of the crack?

Scott, I have always finished up the crack, same finish as Foolish. Looking at the new book, Tony has the route going straight up, so no I wonder if I've never really done this route the right way.

I'm a newcomer to WWR, but I suspect the map in Oklahoma Select is wrong. I think this route finishes in the crack, same as Foolish. That's how we climbed it. That's how y'all climbed it. That is the natural line. The path marked in the book looked very thin and poorly protected.
