Description

NOTE: FA: Luke Childers, June 2011.
FFA: Kevin Capps in July 2011.

This little number was originally bolted to provide a warm up for the Armory. Turns out it's just a touch hard for a warm up, I think!!??!!

This line has nice solid stone and good movement. The climbing is demanding and powerful right off the bat!! with the crux kicking in around the 2nd bolt. The upper section is quite a bit easier. The moves are fun, but I only give the line one star because it is quite short, but it is worth a send if you're in the area. Currently it's the easiest sport route at the Armory. Not a good line to get on in the heat of the summer!!!

Location

The line is at the Armory on white colored rock about 50 or so feet left of The Gauntlet. It's the short 4 bolt line on the leftmost section of the Armory as you make your way a long the hillside towards the Crystal Tower.

Protection

4 bolts/ 2 bolt anchor. currently the anchors have 2 draws for lower off. Please don't take them. Going to put good quicklinks or chains soon. Thxs.

Sweet route man! I love the moves...I just wish it went on for a little longer. I didn't know I got the FFA, cool man. I would suggest trying this route to anyone. Jul 18, 2011

A bit chossy - accidentally got off route to left at third bolt (saw chalked up holds) - not a good idea.... Apr 7, 2014

I personally think this is a great route. Although it is short, the only real knock from me is that the third bolt might be better placed a little further to the left as to follow the natural features of the rock. Beta: I say go out left to the chalked up holds and make the big, balancy step back right on the sloper. It was super fun that way and had decent flow. Jul 22, 2015

I also think this is a pretty cool little route. It looks like a total turd, but it climbs well and forces some finesse. Dec 9, 2018
