[Hide Comment] You guys are my heroes, This climb was one of the hardest slab climbs I have climbed and I only top roped it. There was never a dull moment with 100 ft of 5.10 and the rest 5.8 or 5.9. I thought the crux was the 5.10 mantle on the hollow flake (the flake held) while you are about 20 ft above the last bolt. This would be a wild lead and is a really fun top rope. Dec 12, 2014
