this route would be a super classic lead if it was bolted, as it is now its just an OK top rope.

This line sucks, I don't know what you're talking about Mobes... Ken couldn't climb the real line so instead he made up this bullshit variation.

ha, I dont know and cant keep track of all of these pseudo TR lines Ken made up to pad his book out. I'm talking about the obvious arete to the right of carey corner whatever the fuck its called. It would be a bolted classic in any other state.
