|Similar to Slave but harder and much thinner. I'd give it 4 stars if it wasn't right next to Slave which is unquestionably a four star route. I think George Squibb did the 2nd ascent.|

|Anyone know if this route still goes? It looks like it sees no traffic whatsoever, and I have heard holds have broke making it harder than 14a. Anyone know anything new about this route as it seems to have been off the radar for quite sometime....|

|Thanks, Colin. Yes, I did the 2nd ascent on 10-10-97. Alex Honnold and Chris Weidner also both did the route in 2008. Tommy did it some time earlier.|

In the interest of saving someone's tips, I thought I'd post this conditions update.
I tried this route today (9/29/14), and sadly I think it has broken. There was a section between the 5th and 6th bolts that's clearly missing a hold, at least to be 14a. I checked in with Chris Weidner (who I knew climbed the route in 2008), and he confirmed that Nick Martino broke a hold a few years ago, and he doesn't think it has been climbed since.
It's still likely that the route would go, but the broken section seemed at least V10-ish. I also think the route has gotten slightly chossy and dirty from lack of traffic. If anyone has sent the route in its current state, I'd be curious to hear.
