Fun start to this route. Starts out 5.10a then solid 5.9 after the second bolt. Jun 1, 2010

Fun fun fun- well worth doing. The first three bolts are a great time! Dec 14, 2010
Nice route, although as someone had mentioned, the whole wall is "shedding" still, this route had a piece that was bound to come off do just that. The right foot in the pic up top popped right off. Looking forward to see if this increases the difficulty of the route. Dec 21, 2010

Led this yesterday for the first time. The lost foot hold JT mentions doesn't seem to raise the grade as it only feels like a couple 10a moves. Super fun down low and still interesting up top. A little confusion over which shared anchor to go to, I went left which lowered me down in the right spot. Some of those tiny fins up top seem like they'll pop, as well as a left pinch to clip the first bolt (with no right foot now). The potential of blown hold was the headiest part of the climb for me which kept some of my fear up and enjoyment down. But otherwise super fun and can't wait to come back to RR and the civ crag. BTW, that photo of the guy making the 2nd clip - don't try it. The stance is two feet up with the huge footholds and out of groundfall potential. Had that right foot blown on him during that bite the rope move - he may have lost teeth in addition to a broken ankle. Apr 5, 2011

Just to clear up confusion, there are no shared anchors on the cliff. The proper anchor for Manifest Destiny is indeed the one in the middle, up and left from the last bolt. Apr 26, 2011

Fantastic route on good stone! Climbs more like a route in the canyons than your typical Calico fare. The route flows very well. Dec 26, 2013

I too really enjoyed this route. I agree with the comment about the second clip. If you clip low, the deck potential is very high. Also, the right bolt at the anchors is spinning. Apr 28, 2014

Great Route with great flowing moves. Must do regardless of the easy grade. Both anchor bolts still spinning, but felt solid enough. Oct 25, 2015

Both hangers at the anchor still spin. There's not really any space between the head of the bolt and the hangers, though. Nov 25, 2016

The lower section of this climb is fun as hell and solid 10a. I found it more challenging than Fall of Rome to the left. Apr 8, 2017
