I thought I loaded that hook with pretty good bait...but no one bit. May 30, 2008
Thanks Jbak. Yes. The unnatural hold in question is a tendon popper and it takes away from the fun of the climb. If you do a lot of mono pulling (as is so common on the Lemmon)kidding, you might give it four stars. The climb pucker factor is so high and the exposure so cool that it is worth doing as an aid line. I don't know if I will redpoint it or not but I am glad I went bolt to bolt. In fact I think I would aid this route before I would drive to Box Canyon, but I have never been there. May 30, 2008

So efr, why only two stars ? Because the hold wasn't chipped correctly ?

BTW congrats on your project. Nice to see _somebody_ getting a proj. May 30, 2008
