Description

The start of the route begins to the right of "Ramp o' Stone" at the base of the obvious black, white and green water streak. Climb past 3 bolts to the "pod" and prepare for the crux through the bulge. Follow bolts up the white gator skin to a no hands rest. The last bolt protects the exciting mantel move onto the ramp/bolted anchors. Aesthetic line with great movement.

Protection

9 bolts + anchors/rap rings. All bolts were placed on lead.

Really nice 5.11 route.
Photos do it no justice, striking line with crazy scales.
I wussied and grabbed draws at anchor, silly mantel.
Still dirty a bit in bottom half, needs more traffic.

Thanks for bolting this one, Mr. Russell! Feb 4, 2009

Props for a sick line Mr. Russell. Loved every bit of it. This one has a little of everything, from flaring cracks, steep shit, and thin slab. Got the on-sight, but barely. It had me shaking. Feb 22, 2009

The nut on the bolt at the bulge was really loose last week. I tightened it as much as possible by hand, but it could probably use a little torque of a wrench even still. Didn't have one with me, sorry. Dec 15, 2010

There are now 2 or 3 spinners on this thing. If anyone plans on doing this route, I would bring a wrench & tighten the bolts. They need it badly. Aug 18, 2011

Still a couple of spinners. Nice route but a little dirty in places, but it doesn't distract from the fun climbing. Oct 3, 2011

Climbed on Oct. 16, 2017 - no spinners, bolts look good. Awesome route! Bring a yellow C3 and long runner for the last move if you're squeamish about slabby mantels above bolts. Oct 17, 2017

Didn't find a place for the aforementioned yellow TCU, but I thought a #1 C4 was encouraging between the 3rd and 4th bolt. The move is easy, but I didn't know that on the onsight burn. Oct 29, 2018
