Me leading this route. The graffiti adds a nice to...


Right most sport climb on Right Main Wall. Start on the face just to the right of the 1st drillmark, 10 ft left of the left facing inside corner where Dreaming starts.


4 bolts, 2 rings

[Obviously] It ain't no grade V. It is a super fun route. And it can be lead with trad gear to the top of the cliff. Just watch out for the quality of the rock.

I believe the FA was done by Todd McCormick.

Ed Budde-

If you mean to say Todd McCormick was the first to top rope this route years ago.. you may be correct. However since then the route was extended 8' feet by digging out a massive pile of dirt and rocks and then bolted in the 90's. He did not establish this sport climb. He does not have the FFA.. For historical reasons and out of respect the route's name remain the same. Not that it is the same route anymore. If you have any doubt about these facts you can contact; Dean Morgan, Rich Rice, Dave M, or even Todd McCormick himself.. Plus you can always shoot me a PM if you or Todd Feel the need to discuss anymore.
