The route was super fun except it's almost impossible to get to the anchors unless you are 5'6" or taller. Feb 7, 2009
Crux is definitely the moves to the chains! This route is one of the best sport routes on Wall Street in my opinion. Mar 2, 2009

ABBA inspired routes on Wall Street, wow. Super fun moves the whole way. Could not pull off the crux move at the top on lead, next go around. Crimper for the left, quarter sized crimper for the right, a patented Josh high step and.........

Beautiful patina, interspersed with some not so solid rock, but remarkably those edges seem to be holding up well.

Here is the youtube link for ABBA's "Fernando" You can have this stuck in your head when leading the route next time.

There are two kinds of people in this world; those who love ABBA, and those who lie and say they don't. Mar 13, 2009

This is a great route. I would have to say that it is one of the best face routes that I have done at Potash. If only it were 100 feet long or longer. Nov 21, 2009

Last move felt really hard for me (and for 11b) and I'm 5'10. Great line regardless. Apr 3, 2013

Great climb with superb feet and balance. Reachy crux at the end off a tiny crimp. Apr 15, 2013

Did this climb for the first time this weekend. I'm 5'5" and didn't have too much trouble with the crux; it just required the right amount of balance. Make sure to use that tiny right hand crimp, it goes a long way. Great route! May 5, 2014

Killer route. I thought the beginning was the most difficult and the ending was the easiest. Dec 22, 2015

Loved the climbing on this route. The crux was definitely the dime size crimp at the top . I fell multiple times attempting this move. Felt much harder than 11b. However, the rest of the route wasnt too bad at all. Great bolting, super fun climbing. Loved it Apr 4, 2016

Way fun through the middle but the description is correct when it says a "show stopper crux". The middle sction felt like an 11b but the start and finish felt like a 12a- or 11d. I added part of my short person beta with a picture for the crux. Good luck! May 9, 2018
