Description

This route has 140 feet of stout climbing and overhangs 7 feet. Two distinct cruxes one low and one high. If you lower from the first set of anchors you miss the second crux and you can lower the grade. Take a 70M rope or tie a knot when lowering them to the half way anchors. Almost dropped someone when I did not tie a knot.

Location

See Squeezing the Lemmon ll. To get off thread and lower to the first set of anchors, clip in straight, untie, pull your rope then re-thread and lower to the ground.

Protection

20 bolts

Added leaver biners to the top chains. Again. Please Stop stealing leavers peeps. They're for community use. Not for your rack Jul 2, 2016

I will never understand why people want the old leavers. For what its worth, I have a grip of painted steel biners up for grabs for high traffic routes. Holler if you want some, Jaspur. Jul 3, 2016

Jim Bridwell wrote an article called The Innocent, The Ignorant, and The Insecure. It can be found here: ukclimbing.com/articles/pag…

"Fair rating of a climb implies a moral obligation, on the part of the climber, to consciously be as accurate as possible. A climber who downrates is stating that he is better than another climber. It is a practice as old as the first war. If a climber says a climb is 5.9 that another climber says is 5.10, then the first climber must be better. This is an example of individual competitive climbing." Oct 10, 2017

So JMo... why did you post that on this route ?

I can think of other reasons for being a bit conservative with ratings. Oct 11, 2017

I saw the article at the bloc last week and when I took a close look at this route it reminded me how much I enjoyed Bridwell's perspective on this arguably insignificant yet undeniably sublime issue. Oct 11, 2017
