Seemed every bit as good as Fear and Loathing but much less greasy and not nearly as crowded. Dec 1, 2014

On 12/7/10, the ASCA replaced the 1st bolt on this route with a 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece.

On 12/5/13, the ASCA replaced the rest of the pro bolts and the anchor bolts on this route with 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece bolts and installed mussy hooks on the anchor. Dec 7, 2010

after working on this route on and off over the years, i'd say this thing is probably on the hard side for .12b, if only because of the V5ish boulder problem through the first two bolts. The upper part is pretty chill, although the pump can catch you high on the route if you dont take advantage of the good rest in the middle.

All in all, not as good as Fear and Loathing and a solid step up- I'd probably put this thing at a bit easier than Minstrel, but not by much and definitely not as classic. Dec 20, 2009
