Yup, Shagg It is amazing. It's long and has it all from steep reachy side pulls to jug hauling, as well as a few hand jams and technical moves to finish it off. This would be a very proud onsight.

If you do it on gear you get to make a necklace out of the bolts and wear it for good-luck! Badass, Chris.

Someone needs to adopt this and give it a better description.

New description:

Climb the first two bolts of Great Escape, then head straight up. Make a huge move sideways to the left -- short climbers will be stretched to oblivion -- to a shake. Breathe, consider the steepness above, and launch into the meat of the route. Make a series of big, dynamic moves between big holds until just below the final dihedral, where you can step right onto a slab and get a squatting, foot-numbing rest that's not as good as you think it should be. Remember all those acrobatics you did below? Forget all that. Battling the dihedral involves intricate, techy moves that end with one final strength-sapping move to finishing jugs that can feel heartbreakingly far away with a pump. Clip the chains. Feel proud.
