I'm assuming something broke. Fingery doesn't begin to describe the heinous razors one would have to deal with to actually pull off the center section of this route, and I don't know how to apply a grade to holds that your brain won't hold onto. Then there's the top which might be doable if you go around and finish by climbing Slug Man but there appear to be no holds to stay on the right side of the arete. Jun 12, 2017
