Description

Not even the first ascensionists could love this route, although it is a real climb and deserves a half a star. They didn't have the half-star option, so I went ahead and gave it zero stars.

Tod Anderson cleaned an incredible amount of kitty litter off of this route until he had tunneled down to a nice base layer of regular choss.It climbs pretty cleanly now, although the features are all somewhat suspect.

This route is the fourth route from the left edge of the Choss Temple. If you want to do a pretty good route at this rating, I would recommend moving one more route to the right to do Into Thin Choss (11 d).
