Description

Incredible route that I'm kicking myself for not bolting first. Oh well. This route climbs straight up the center of the wall, with a hard start, sustained mid-section and a tricky exiting sequence. This route stays on you with exhilarating movement and is an excellent tick for the grade.

Does this still have glue on the first crimper over the edge? It seems like a shame if it is. The rest of the route is stellar movement w/out anything being manufactured or held together. It sounds like it's getting a lot of traffic, that's good to hear. Dec 31, 2006
Probably one of the best routes for the grade in Spearfish Canyon. It throws a little bit of everything at you. You'd better be on your toes to get this one. It has tossed everyone who has been on it. Be prepared for a little work. Fun and super classic, a must do! Dec 19, 2002
