The route was super fun except it's almost impossible to get to the anchors unless you are 5'6" or taller.

Crux is definitely the moves to the chains! This route is one of the best sport routes on Wall Street in my opinion.

ABBA inspired routes on Wall Street, wow. Super fun moves the whole way. Could not pull off the crux move at the top on lead, next go around. Crimper for the left, quarter sized crimper for the right, a patented Josh high step and.........

Beautiful patina, interspersed with some not so solid rock, but remarkably those edges seem to be holding up well.

Here is the youtube link for ABBA's "Fernando" You can have this stuck in your head when leading the route next time.

There are two kinds of people in this world; those who love ABBA, and those who lie and say they don't.

Sam, do you have the soundtrack for "Momma Mia"? Any new additions to the new Sam and Josh crag?

This is a great route. I would have to say that it is one of the best face routes that I have done at Potash. If only it were 100 feet long or longer.

11b? Maybe if your 6'+ or have the route dialed.

Last move felt really hard for me (and for 11b) and I'm 5'10. Great line regardless.

Great climb with superb feet and balance. Reachy crux at the end off a tiny crimp.
