Don't fall getting to the first bolt; no reliable pro and the rock is funky and the clip is high! Would be better if climbed more regularly; the upper half gets dirty but the climbing is good! Bring extra cams around the 0 TCU size. Jun 23, 2013

Fixed cam in the upper half. It is pretty rusty, so be careful if you clip it. Sep 30, 2014

The cam is still there. The rock down low is marked with an X where it's detached. The bolts look awful - hangers are okay but bolts and nuts have oxidation and galvanic corrosion, and threads of the bolts not fully engaged with the nut. Would recommend joining Meat Grinder after the last overhang instead of groveling through the nastiness up high. May 2, 2018
