Another hard climb. Haven't done any of the movement on this route, but it looks good.
(adding this for completeness only)


Start on the obvious chalked holds to the right of Private Little War, go straight up to the summit.

Crux hold has broken a bunch and is currently gone. Rumor has it that it can be done by climbing further right and back left at the crux but I've not tried this. Unfortunate, as the rest of the route is stellar. Nov 8, 2010
I remember about 10 years ago some douche bag glued a chunk of rock at the crux. About as subtle as those cell towers disguised as pine trees in the desert.

Maybe all that plastic surgery took its toll on the route. Jun 3, 2011

Well the rock isn't pristine and the line is proud. I think a little epoxy would be well worth preserving the climbing. Certainly better than letting it sit and collect cobwebs. Most of the route is kind of a jug and, and VERY fun. It deserves to be fixed. Hopefully tastefully but whomever wants to invest the time should get some artistic license. Mar 14, 2012
