This is a long time area climber Jon Hein on Into ...


This is a really cool and reletively long pockety line. With a neat undercling-y and pocket-y crux right near the top, it is really fun. Maybe a little hard for the grade but uber cool.


As you turn into the area from the railroad tracks it is on the right hand side of the free standing tower on your left. As usual rap, don't lower, from the anchors on top.


All bolt line, about 8(?)

Rob Drysdale bolted and lead it, though I think it had been toproped previously.

Love this route. Good area to avoid the Carbondale groups usually, and the undercling at the top with frustrate a pumped leader.
