Words cannot describe how terrible this route actually is. I figured, it looks awful but it's only 5.11 and can't be that bad right? Started up it, breaking of handholds and feet with almost every move. Clipped the third bolt and was contemplating my next move when both large/chalked jugs I was hanging on broke simultaneously. One struck me in the face as I whipped and both narrowly missed my belayer below. Due to the danger to my belayer, and my bleeding face, it was time to be done. Stay off this garbage pile.

I got on this route expecting it to be the worst route in the Alcove (saving it for last). It was bad don't get me wrong, but I feel many other routes have similar chossy and oily feeling sections (like citation). Though this may have a longer oily section... and due to less traffic a little more chossy than most
