As you look up and left from "Original Sin" it is hard not to miss the giant inverted "V" formation. The right side has been bolted and is lower 5.12. This project is also known as "The Lieback From Hell". I have not tried it since 1993. I am planning on working it out this year. Needs some cleaning again. Very pumpy for granite. If you choose to try it prepare for an ass kicking of monsterous proportions.

The name of this route has been changed to "CHEAP SEEKING MISSLE" aka: "THE BIG RASPBERRY".

See the photo of McNasty and Uncle Cheapskate in the new issue (April 2008) of "Climbing" working on the redpoint of this rocket launcher.
