[Hide Comment] Is this the route that had one of the anchor bolts sticking out an inch? If so, burly 8+. Mar 9, 2011

[Hide Comment] Halfway up the dihedral there were 3 loose, stacked blocks that have come down. I'd say the route is now at least a grade harder. Instead of hand jams on the loose block, there are solid fists in the back of a small chimney.

[Hide Comment] I did the FA of this with Brian Shelton in 2006. We called it Cap'n Smith. It looks better than it climbs.... Sep 3, 2018
