[Hide Comment] I love this route! The boulder problem start is improbable at best. I'm 5'9" with a negative ape index...a little taller might make it a bit easier, but your are still going to have to really crank. About .12+ for me. Not sure why, but it won't let me remove the aid rating. Hmmmm. Jan 13, 2009
