Awesome route...bring some good technique.

Great crack that requires technique to get through the crux as there are no face holds. Middle of the route takes slung features and then a thin face move to top out. Great route! Biggest thing I took was a #2 camalot, but you could place a 3, or even a 4 on this route.
Oh yeah, if you think it's .9, you're in for a surprise.

This climb is no 5.9. I thought Buster Brown was easier but then again fingery cruxs are not my forte.

Down a musty corridor in time leading to a faded memory of what is more than likely a different route, this route is a 5.9. Gotta love Blitzo!
The crux has bomber locks but I feel like the foot jam you get at that point levers you out of them somewhat. Consequently, the low crux on this route feels a bit burly, but it's soon over.
The top of this route looks like a real pile but is actually pretty interesting climbing. You won't get bored. Pro up to a #3 or #4 camalot will work out pulling around the bulge.

It was a good day when we did the first free ascent. Earlier we did a new route called "Horny". We named it that because we saw a couple getting it on next to the stream. They were quick and unexciting. Then we came across a bag of weed, bagged a FFA and had a swell day!
