I thought this one was as easy, or easier, than Lost Planet Airman to the right. Maybe I was more warmed up for it (being the 4th climb compared to the second), but it felt like I was just more worn out. Even then, I thought this one to be a bit more manageable due to more resting opportunities and not quite as sustained in nature. Jan 15, 2011

Agree with the previous comment. The crux on this is after the second bolt, and it felt similar in difficulty to the crux on LPA, which is also after the second bolt. The rest of the route is a little less sustained. Both routes are 4 stars. Nov 14, 2011

I did both this route and its neighbor back to back on 10/28/15. I think both offer good shakes, but I felt like Taping Tendons was a bit harder right off the ground. The 2nd and 3rd bolt are pretty committing to clip. Regardless, both are great climbs featuring stellar, vertical crimping. Oct 29, 2015
