AUG. 2013 2) 1/2" SS bolts and Fixe hangers with chain at 100' top out of PBR.

I have heard from a few folks that climbed this that think it is harder than 10b. If you climb this, rate it here and maybe the consensus will clear this up. The start is strenuous layback, green/yellow Alien, flaring hand, tricky few moves to gain good hold, hands to fingers around bulge ( face holds for high foot) stump/dirt, then groove to stem over bulge, large crack out right, more stemming till easy upper corner to anchor

Fantastic addition to the mid wall! The upper third (from the tree stump up) isn't as clean as the start but once it is polished up with a bit more traffic and scrubbing this line is sure to become classic.

Awesome route. I thought it felt slightly harder than Folsom Blues (or at least more sustained), so I give it at .10c. Fantastic climbing the whole way!

taking advantage of the spring weather in February to complete cleaning PBR. Used a cordless sawsall to remove the stump and roots, yikes that is hard work. Hammer and chisel too. Climbed it 3 times, really great however very wet.
