[Hide Comment] Difficult climbing between second and third bolt. Moving right and using key pockets makes it flow easier. Mar 21, 2007

[Hide Comment] I found going past the third bolt the crux; obvious RH side-pull enables one to move up to a left hand bucket pocket. Mar 22, 2007

[Hide Comment] I did this route again but with a complete different sequence than previously. Again between the 2nd and 3rd bolt but more direct line using side pulls, high right foot and crossing over with my left hand to a high but very positive pocket in a slot. Just as the business was over and I was pulling the short and ultra-positive roof I popped and now sport a nice little rope burn directly behind my knee. Damn it!

I like this route because it keeps you thinking. Oct 21, 2007
