[Hide Comment] Fun crux moves protected by bolts that would inspire more confidence if they had less rust. May 4, 2019

[Hide Comment] I think there's now a new set of bolts down low that ascends between the starts of Lovey/Namby and You're Only Nice to Me When I Tie You Up. Basically provides a direct start to Lovey-Dovey that is probably also 10a. Hardest part for me was the first couple moves off the ground. The finishing moves are a bit overhung, but on great holds; might be harder for shorter climbers. Sep 2, 2019

[Hide Comment] Most of the bolts on this route were spinning and rusty, I didn't fall on any but they are somewhat worrying. Aug 31, 2020
