Jesus, dude. I hopped on this on the TR and just about started to cry from the pain. At one point I had a middle finger monojam and an upside-down-underclingy-fingerstack while standing on a small plant and edging on a chip of lichen. Way to go. 5.13-? Sure felt stacks harder than the Avenger. Sep 1, 2007

A killer route. Hard to place gear, I used a mix of very small Metolius offsets for the bottom and a few nuts higher up. Felt much less pumpy but also definitely more bouldery than Avenger. I'd say 13b. Sick route, Josh! Aug 22, 2015

I agree with J-Star: this route is really good. I've walked past it for years with a bit of skepticism and finally got on it a few weeks ago. At first, I had a similar react to Kalous, but then I unlocked the beta (the name is a hint) and found it super fun. I haven't been on the Avenger in ten years, but it's a pretty different style - basically a long boulder problem over some small cams to pumpy but easier climbing until you get to the ledge and join the bolted 5.11.

It seemed a bit headier than the Avenger, too, only in that one is never far from the ledge at the base. The gear is good but hard to place well with the strenuous climbing. Anyway, this thing is rad and another good, hard trad climb! Aug 31, 2017
