I can't remember which route this is.  Ben will remember though.  He put up a nice lead on it.

[Hide Comment] Finally got up the nerve to lead it; skittered off the thin starting section and blew the redpoint. It's been so long since I'd climbed this one, I'd forgotten what a great line it is. The face above the roof has a few tenuous moves, but it's well protected (better than I remembered). Recommended!

NOTE: High Infidelity has its own bolted anchors now, no need for using the anchors on Tainted Love. Nov 10, 2007
