Description

The first route to be put up on the Patina Wall. Just right of Tec-9. The top is entertaining with finger-lockoffs in small cracks. Goes through mostly dark brown patina towards the top.

Location

Just right of Tec-9.

Protection

Bolts.

Favorite lead climb on this wall, the top 3 bolts are full of awesome edging on features significantly smaller than tech-9 but still very good Jan 13, 2012

Did this line twice since there seems to be a new line of bolts after bolt #4, heading off slightly left. Enjoyable both ways. Feb 27, 2012

Just a note: When Chris and I put this one up we only placed one bolt near the bottom chasm and that was it. When I led it it seemed the upper part was perfectly protectable using slings and nuts on the chickenheads. But, that said, I'm fine with new bolts if they make the climb safer and aren't overdone in places where there are obvious other alternatives. Placing bolts should be a last resort and only done to replace existing, deteriorating bolts or if there is a mass consensus that more bolts are needed.

Go out and do it and let me know what you think. This is a great short route. Dec 20, 2013

Great route. Whether there was 20 bolts or 5 bolts, it climbed awesome. Kudos to developer. Jan 10, 2014

Cool route and would like to go back with some slings and a few nuts for the lead. I bet that would add a lot of value to this one Nov 12, 2018
