[Hide Comment] There's two sets of anchors up top and I thought this one used the right most and chug a jug and bong a long shared the left anchors. Seemed to flow that way atleast? Sep 14, 2007
[Hide Comment] this route seemed harder than chug a jug. Jun 21, 2008

[Hide Comment] This route is too good -- and popular -- to go without a name. How about something that emphasizes its location in the center of the crag, something like "Middle of the Road" or "Halfway There"? Aug 9, 2010

[Hide Comment] A little harder then Chug a jug next to it. Some good holds. I hope more people get on this wall to get it cleaned up. Still a little dirty. Oct 17, 2011

[Hide Comment] Fun route, even though this is rated easier than the routes to the left and the right, I'd say that this one is actually the hardest of the three routes on that face. Small hands to a high first bolt and hands and feet are pretty thin just after the second bolt. This shares anchors with Chug a Jug , Bong A Long has its own anchors to the left. Apr 21, 2014

[Hide Comment] Was there last night and noticed the fourth bolt is a spinner and is bent. Needs to be replaced. May 19, 2016
[Hide Comment] I suggest in keeping with the theme we name this route "3 Sheets" because it has 3 shelves on the way up. Thoughts before submitting to Mtn Project? Jul 11, 2017
[Hide Comment] Someone placed a second set of anchors for chug a jug.
Thank you to everyone who supports the climbing community and sets all these awesome routes. Sep 28, 2017

[Hide Comment] The second to last bolt is very lose, and spinning. Be aware. Nov 25, 2017
