Ditto on the decking potential. A fat crash pad would ease the heathead game. Two top-rope bolts with a ton of rope drag for such a short route.

Love it or hate it, I absolutely love this route. Besides being short, to me it's got what E-Rock sport face climbing is all-about--head leads, standing/pulling on cuddle, decking potential that's real (so don't fall...)... Mar 17, 2014

Last time I got on this, it still had deacking potential while clipping, has it been retroed? Jun 28, 2007
