|I agree with Spencer, this is a great route and right up to par with the high bar set at the Ech. I will say the moves are not quite as interesting as some of the other routes on the wall like Tail Spin and Old Man, which is why I give it 3 stars, but if you're looking to step it up a notch, this climb should not be missed. A great finish that is super low percentage adds to the frustrations but makes the victory all that much sweeter. Only took me 16 heartbreaking tries.|

|What is the Dark Horse Project...and where is it? And how hard do you think it is? And is it open?|

|The Dark Horse Project traverses in from the right side (to the left of Fulsom Flute) and finishes on Dark Pony. It was probably somewhere around 14- until one of the holds broke. Check with Ben Scott, but I think it's an open project.|

The bolt that protects the big Dyno seems loose. The actual bolt stud seems to wiggle a bit inside its hole. This bolt probably sees a lot of abuse with repeated falls from this hard section.
Just a heads up for anyone planning to get on the route.
