BMOC. Late Nov 2007

Description 

Not a standard route for the wall... as in not sustained. Well defined crux at the small roof (15 foot mark) featuring double, wide horizontal pinches and a stab to a decent hold. Great 5.11 climbing to the anchors.

Location 

Located 8 feet right of Pork Tornado

Protection 

6 bolts, three bolt anchor with chains

Route leads really nicely with varied climbing and a powerful crux.

Very cool route with a tricky crux down low and solid and fun 11 climbing higher up. As high quality as Hawaiian Bill or Pork Tornado.

Great route Travis et al. Agree about the quality comparisons Gorny. Also thanks for the excavation to make the base flat, looks like a ton of work.

This is a really fun route. Another great 5.12 for the Meader wall.
