Almost felt harder than Galloping Gal

Description 

A so-so route that probably isnt worth doing with all the other awesome routes in the vicinity. If you do, make sure to take a medium cam (.5/.75 camalot) for between the 4th and 5th bolts- rock and bolt quality are both suspect.


Location 

Located just right of Galloping Gal


Protection 

6 bolts, one cam.

This route is aptly named! I had to post a comment just because it deserves a bomb rating instead of one star. :-)

I disagree. I thought the rock was a little chossy in some places, but found this climb not lacking in cool moves and a distinct crux before the horizontal slash.

This is a fun route, well worth doing. It is pretty thin and sequencey though, so maybe not everyone's cup of tea.

The climb seems to have cleaned up a little because the rock quality was good as of today. I was more worried about flakes breaking on Galloping Gals.
