[Hide Comment] This is an intense route with powerful moves and a dyno finish. FA's of this and all other bolted routes on Meader Wall are done by Dave Groth. In my opinion the route is well bolted. First clip is little hard but can be easily stick clipped. Nov 7, 2006

[Hide Comment] IMO a fair bit harder than Hawaiian Bill and almost as hard as Brown Reason. I onsighted Hawaiian Bill and this thing took me 3 trips to LaCrosse! Very big moves, sustained and powerful, punctuated by small crimps and delicate moves. Jul 7, 2007
[Hide Comment] There is absolutely no need to dyno on this route. Dec 17, 2008
[Hide Comment] Hmmmm.....Why don't you tell us why that is Martin. That might be helpful.
Oh, and this is "Meader Wall" not "meter wall". Dec 18, 2008

[Hide Comment] Static goes with a right hand two finger pocket gaston about 18 inches above the undercling. those two holds, get high feet and go static to the jug rather than doing the dyno. Mar 29, 2010
