Great long routes, climbing is different from the rest of the quarry, face climbing with small features, almost reminds me of the vertical climbing at Big Chief. Jan 3, 2014

Anyone have any info on the route to the left of Little Caesar? Due to some sloppy research, I mistook it for Little Caesar and got on it today. It climbed pretty dirty/loose and felt stout for 11- so I started questioning if I was on the right route. Then I clipped a couple old rustly leeper looking hangers and decided to down aid my way off the route before I died. I did notice the old piece of cord hanging on the first bolt, but disregarded it as nothing since I thought it was an established route, but maybe a red tag? Sorry for chuffing all over it if that's the case. Seems like it'll be pretty cool if it cleans up and those bolts get a facelift. Apr 13, 2016

Sara I think i know what you are talking about. there has been a rope hanging on that route almost all winter. it has vanished within the last 2 months. would also like to know if the FA party has finished since i have just assumed it was still a project because i havent heard anything about it yet.

That is my project, finally got motivated to finish cleaning it up and bolting it this weekend. Needs a little more cleaning/working to redpoint. Should be good, challenging addition to the cliff. Would like to know who took that rope and took my hammer, jumar. aider stashed below. Takes a lot of effort to put up routes at the Quarry. May 22, 2016
