This route was originally put up in the style of the Eighties, by two very strong and bold hardmen (Rob Woolf & Jeff Frizell). These gentlemen had more balls than bolts! Thanks to the permission of Rob Woolf, the route now sports chains and a few more bolts. The new bolts should be obvious - climb the route and imagine sending with the original pro. The pucker factor would have pegged the meter! There was even a pin pounded into a dubious block for good measure.... The technical crux happens before the roof, and requires some pretty strong tendons. The roof has some relatively cruiser pulling from blocks to killer huecos, with a final 11+ move to the chains.
15 bolts plus chains

The crux begins just after clipping the first quic...

Hard for 12b, but not ridiculously so - sort of like 12b in Rifle.Would be given 12c in many areas.
Really fun and really burly!I recommend going here in cool weather - it faces south.
