Benjamin, curious to know what you thought of Immaculate? Interesting pitch.

"Everything the name implies?" A tube worth of glue is certainly not what I was expecting with the name Immaculate. Nevertheless, it is a fun route that is engaging until the end.

It's the Santa Monica's. John Long characterized it as "vertical mud." No sense in bitching about it. Just make a tube of epoxy part of your rack.
G. Halsne...what I think is that folks should stop toproping through the shuts and place their own gear.

I enjoyed the route and have no complaints with the glue. I highly recommend it. While the route is poorly named, it does not bother me. My annoyance came from the quoted section in the previous route description. Thanks for changing it.

I probably exaggerated the amount of glue, but there is quite a bit up there
