Pretty good route. Bring a bunch of cams and loooooong extendo runner for the TR. Apr 14, 2014

Definetely not a bomb. Not sure this route warrants an "R" rating, either. If you come armed with a rack of tiny cams and RP's (and the skills to place them), gear can be found nearly every bodylength on this line. Nov 20, 2011
A really fun line that would be a bit of a sketchy lead. Worth TR-ing if your in the area and in the mood. Steep, juggy, and really fun. Jump on the Right Crack .11c TR variation (straight up the seam/crack) too... fun stuff. Nov 2, 2008

No way is this one a bomb!

The pro really sucks though, but it is one of the better A/B TRs around. Sep 29, 2007
