Direct start adds fun steep climbing with little chance for recovery before launching into the meat of the route. It felt solid at 12d. Jul 20, 2015

This direct start adds a little pump, but no real change in the grade. It also allows someone to climb Native Rituals at the same time. Mar 21, 2014

Lance bolted this, not sure if Ian was involved and I got the FFA after their hard work with Lance's permission. Also it finishes at the original Clovis Hunter anchor and not the Native Ritual anchor though it would not really make a difference either way. Nov 24, 2008
