Fun, steep climb on lots of pockets. After a big reach to the jug to clip the third bolt you think it's over, but it stays in your face for the next two bolts. Do it!

one of the best routes ive done in AF to date. steep climbing with amazing holds and a really powerfull/reachy sequence at the third bolt( clipping the bolt is easy, dont worry). if you enjoy bouldery moves on positive holds you will love this route.

This is one epic line. Powerful moves through deep pockets at the crux, and then a great jug haul to the top. Deffinitely one of the best tens in the canyon.

In my opinion there's only one move that makes it .10d

Fun long roof pull on good holds.

I didn't have any quick links with me yesterday, but the last links on the chains at the anchors are worn to within 1/4 inch or less and could use some quick links.

Deadpointed the reachy move under #3, then dynoed up the face. Highly recommended. Agree that the chains are wearing pretty thin - I had one quick link, so I added it. Will bring up another Friday if nobody beats me to it.
