this is a fun little climb that should be a great warmup once it cleans up a bit. when i followed the FA there were literally PILES of bird crap a small ledge about 2/3 of the way up.

the all-air rap into the corridor is a nice touch.

As an additional bonus to having Mike and Jon out to LDE, we got a new route with a hilarious name! Thanks for your enthusiasm, guys! A bit of wire brush work will clean this baby up nicely. :)

Finally got on this route recently. Fun moves and a great warm up for the area. Bird crap "pillars" are still present, but mostly easily avoidable. No snakes. Thanks for the route, Mike!
