None, unless they use horses to make chewing gum and bailing wire.

fun start moves lead to a nice rest before a short but legit V5 crux of pinching and pulling, and the ending is tits too

Wow! At the end of the day and after sending OP and disfigured foreigner I tried this thing. Got my ass handed to me at the crux at the top! It will go next time I am on it. Great route. But man that flake scary shit. But if Mikey B was yanking on it. It should be good.

This thing is enduro, don't think I've ever one-hung a route so many times before eventually sending.

Climbs a LOT better than it looks.

As is becoming my style, I left two quickdraws and two alphine draws on this route 9/27/2014. Unfortunately I have not returned and likely will not until next season. Feel free to use them but be sure to pay attention to their condition. Feel even freer to return them. Thanks and sorry.
