So it took me like 5 tries to figure out where to start this route (traverse from left). Pretty much every bolt was runout (not saying it's a bad thing, just informing). The crux at the top felt very hard to me. Durnin said a flake broke, I'm assuming it was there. Would be tough to onsight. Regardless, this route was amazing, and I would do it 100 times again.

Two hard mantels. Really challenging since the top flake broke. Fun. Definitely give it a shot. Apr 6, 2016

Great climbing, committing move to the first jug then just balancy climbing with good protection to a crux finale. No move harder than 5.10a unless you are real short. Oct 29, 2012
Cleaned someone's draws off the first two bolts yesterday (7-27), looks like they bailed before the runout to the 3rd bolt. Please e-mail or call me, and I will get them back to you. Makes me think they were in a hurry to get out of there as they could have rapped in to get them back. 970946 7237. Jul 28, 2012

Best route at X Rock. Crash pad is a good idea for the tricky start above a nasty, ankle-breaking landing. Great face climbing that kind of reminded me of Penitente Canyon. I'll echo what Skyeler said about emotions! Mar 31, 2012

I've only been in Durango a few days and have only climbed a few routes, but this has been the best one so far. So good. Jan 14, 2012

A route with both a bottom and top crux. Challenging for the grade but well worth the effort and scares. A must do. Sep 15, 2010
Hard slabby beginning. Harder for those with shorter limbs. However, well worth the time if you're near it. Apr 3, 2010

An emotional lead. One of Durango's best pitches. Mar 7, 2009
