This route is full on! More bouldery than other D. Lake 13's. Travis came one fall from sending this thing yesterday. Really strong effort on Trav's part, what a great route.

Thanks Remo, yea I thought one falling a route meant that the next attempt would be a send.... No such luck there, I 'one falled' 6 times yesterday! All from the last move to the jug. So frustrating! But what an awesome route to project!
I overheard someone calling this "hard 14a. almost 14b" last Saturday. Is that true? I'm not gonna hop on it (yet!!!) but the grade discrepancy seems strange

So what is the official ending of this route? After the business you hit the big horizontal crack 10 ft below the top. Do you just finish by the easiest path, or does it traverse right in the horizontal and then up?
