This route is mother flippin awesome. Thin, funky, awesome holds, balance-y, technical, and varied. Small but good gear and very safe. You can get all the way to the bolts on top of High Test with a 70 m and lower with rope to spare. Tough at the start, then continuous until you hit the roof, where it eases up quite a lot.

Agree with Kirby. Great, sustained route. Probably nothing larger than a #1 C4 needed. After the roof you can kinda wander over to the High Test bolts on some licheny, but OK rock. Wasps have been known to sometimes be a nuisance on this in the summer. Jul 10, 2015
Continuing to the high test anchors is a good idea. I recently arrived at the slung block/flake at the top of the route and found old slings that were cut (for good reason). I was planning to rap the route and clean the gear so I wanted to use this anchor rather than traverse over to the high test anchors. After slinging the block/flake with new webbing I bounce tested it before going off belay. The bounce test resulted in a sketchy groaning noise from the rock! I unslung my webbing and was happy to traverse to high test and rap off those bomber bolts! Dec 7, 2015
