Drilling stance....

Location 

This is the steep face just right of Jaws Part 2 (Shark Bait) and left of Herringbone Direct .


Description 

This was bolted on lead off hooks and beaks. Hard! Stay on the face and off the adjacent routes or it's much easier than suggested....


Protection 

S. s. bolts! 4 and an anchor.

I'm not sure of the grade...it can feel 11d and it can feel 12d. It just depends on the humidity and how good your balance is...super fun! The hardest thing I've done, I think. At first I thought it could be 13a, but after a few attempts I feel that would be too far a stretch. I do feel it's a little harder than Ten Digit Dialing though...have fun.

Tough and sustained—I like, is NICE!

This is a great route that is really sustained. I personally thought this was harder than Tiger's Woody, but maybe it's the technical subtleties that make it feel harder. Like Mike said, when I first tried the route, it felt like 13a, but once I unlocked some key beta, it felt slightly easier. Thanks for the route!

I also thought the route felt like 13a after my first burn, but after refining the sequences, it felt a little more reasonable.
The sustained nature and poor rests make it feel harder than 'Tiger's'; however, there may not be any one single move that is as hard. Still very stout and my favorite at the Quarry.
