One of my all time favorite pitches at Stone. Heads up climbing if you're not comfortable with well spaced bolts (mainly the high first). Jan 7, 2013

Exciting friction climbing dodging rotten rock that I never want to do again. Jul 1, 2017
Did this with EBs and it felt very exciting. Came back after sticky rubber was introduced - what a difference. Great route. Nov 18, 2017
