Description

One of my favorite routes at "Cranklin" with unique(for the area) sequency limestone climbing down low and jugs up high if you can hang on long enough.

Well worth doing but be aware that the grade it the "given" grade and anyone who has climbed it I know of will say its the most sandbagged route at the crag. Well worth doing but bring a bail biner if you are a 10a climber. Prefferably a nice wiregate...

Location

Just around the corner right of Lost Planet Airman in a small alcove-like area. It ascends the center of the smooth wall on the left with a line of bolts up it.

This route is 10b and has always been 10b... never did figure out who thought it was 10a... probably one of the folks who put it in a Falcon Press guide without contacting any of the FAs.... Dec 2, 2009

Someone can correct me, but I was under the impression that this route is named after/by John Burcham, the photographer. Apr 27, 2010
