This is a fun route. On the lower bulge, spice it up by avoiding the huge rail - there are plenty of nice, smaller holds to the left, which make for an interesting traverse to the next bolt. Aug 7, 2008

A little easier than "Shoot at Will". I like this route. Jul 5, 2010

I'd say this route is 5.9 and quite good.

I just led it 30 minutes ago.

It is harder than Gold Bar 5.9 and Lady Luck 5.9.

I should probably do it again soon! Sep 7, 2016
