The crux is pulling through the notch over the bulge. The rock has a popcorn texture (ouch!), and the crux is way harder than the rest of the climbing, but will clean up with more traffic. I think it's pretty hard for the grade.


This route is just right of To Send is Bovine. The two routes share anchors.


6 Bolts.

Didn't feel it was that chossy. There are definitely some cleaned off foot sections and secure barnacle-y rock throughout the beginning section. Worth a burn if you are doing the 11 to the left, as they share anchors and a final draw. Jul 24, 2014

Just got on this route. It is definitely not cleaning up. None of the feet are usable, they just keep scraping off. Ended up bailing due to the horrendously chossy nature of the rock. If you want to climb this route, bring a very big brush. Jul 6, 2014

This route was bolted by Luke Laeser, but I'm not sure he ever had the chance to come back and get the FA. Jul 10, 2007
