Description

Probably the proudest line at the Cascades. Tough, easy to access, straight forward from the start to the finish, and visible by all who pass.

When looking at the front, trail facing portion of the roof, this line sitstarts underneath the roof on the right sides, butt on the ground, hands on opposite facing flat sidepulls (compression). Lift up for a big, fun, gratifying latch to a massive jug to start the next sequence.

Climb up onto the small holds on the side of the boulders face and commence the pumpy traverse left and low into the start of "Inglorious" and finish as per.

Cool, well I'll leave it as an octo grade! Glad the line aided in some ever needed yoga. Awesome stuff, I'll go to the New too. Dec 27, 2013

The awesomeness with the inglorious stand is the two options for beta there. I have seen the right techy way beta work marvelously for people on the shorter side or with mutant hip flexibility (brehmster) to properly get the foot over the super high lip. They made it look easy! For me and several other meathead apekings, we tried the right way a fckhellion times and it always felt terrible and impossible. We felt like frogs!! I honestly worked on my hip flexibility just for this problem. With the discovery of the left thuggin way, the problem suddenly felt completely possible and the only requirement was brutal lock-off strength. This way still feels hard unless you're mega tall and powerful!! But is hella fun!!! Dec 27, 2013

Going with the consensus trend my man! If the other lines on the boulder and several in the area have settled to a lower grade (which usually happens over time) I figured why not? Especially since the "inglorious" stand went differently than how it was first climbed very soon after the FA of both problems (so no, nothing new or recent has changed). The new hold is cool and makes more since, but the hold and beta dropped the grade. I went through and adjusted the grades on popular VA boulders as I usually do (keeping up with the vote) according to the consensus. I could care less about grades, just adjusting, so if it feels v8 than it still stands! I can change it right back dude! Dec 27, 2013

Does this and inglorious really need a downgrade? Is there new beta?? This felt a solid amount of difficulty harder than brooklyn bridge/money or any other v7/8 power enduro line I've been on. But then again, I am a sport climber and don't have as much of a experienced view with boulder grades. I guess that's the beauty in consensus, I'll just go to the new!!! In truth, its a beautiful line, totally accessible to home, and a joy to challenge myself on every time :)) Dec 27, 2013
