[Hide Comment] Couldn't be sure of where this line actually went. Tried locating it based on the description here and the picture in the actual guidebook. Perhaps the third bolt requires an awkward/contrived series of moves out to the right and then back?? Otherwise this is a .10a R that climbs straight up on good pockets. Jun 7, 2013

[Hide Comment] Route goes up/right to third bolt, then up/left to 4th bolt, before joining the adjacent route. Jul 28, 2017
