Me on Forsaken. (Photo by Jon Bitter)

Description 

Just a FUN route!!! A perfect gym climbers route. I can't understand why more people don't try it. Really good holds/moves all the way to the last bit. It seems that you can chose to go right or stay left in the crack and crimpers.
No obvious crux, just a long line of good holds on a slightly overhanging wall. Don't just absently follow the crack the whole way.

Location 

The long crack feature right of center leading from a steep ramp.

Protection 

8 bolts, ring anchors.

Tristan in a neat rest position. He made a great attempt for the flash! Falling right at the last part. The route isn't hard as much as it is just pumpy.

John looking in great control...too bad it's with really hard beta (much easier to climb on the right side of the crack through this part).

Got pumped out of my brains and fell after clipping the last bolt. Cool route with some crappy approach climbing before the first bolt. The route is super sustained with no real technical crux--just gotta hold on and keep going!
