Great long climb, good rock lots of good pockets and fun moves. I thought it was an easy 5.8 just long and steep.

Named Turbo Fly in Knezek's guide, but since Jason entered this description I guess we'll trust his name :-)

Great 5.8, long and steep with a couple tricky sections. Fantastic footholds.

Sixth bolt is a really bad spinner with the nut being very loose. I could easily spin the nut with my bare hands. Perhaps just needs torquing back down. I certainly wouldn't want to fall on it. 11/6/2012
