This climb looks kind of dirty from below but I gave it a cursory brushing on lead and one on the way down and it climbed really well after that. Unique rock yields different moves than other Index routes. It may not be a contender for the best route at Index, but it has intriguing moves and is certainly worthy of attention. There is one questionable fin of rock at the top that I pulled on but it could potentially be avoided. I replaced the one piece of anchor webbing with newer blue webbing. Anchor hardware is a little rusty but not terrible. Don't let the moss at the top deter you; all the necessary holds are clean. Mar 11, 2015
