[Hide Comment] Maybe I missed something (or maybe some holds broke since) but this route basically felt like a one move wonder after the 3rd bolt on slimy/grimy microscopic crimps to a good hold out left. It's like 10d to the 3rd bolt, then one V6 move and 5.10 finish.
One of the good holds broke when I climbed it yesterday (I'm not a big guy nor was I pulling on it like a mad chimp, so it seems like it was ripe for breakage). It's one of the 2 good holds you reach after the crux, but there's still one of them left right next to it, so the sequence/grade shouldn't be too different. Mar 23, 2014

[Hide Comment] I approached this climb with one goal: to be able to take the Black Diamond Neutrino that someone had left as a bail biner on the second bolt. I ended up making it the the 3rd bolt, but couldn't get past the crux. Unable to proceed, I unclipped as I climbed down.

It's not a pretty biner, it's not a new, shiny biner, but it's the first piece of booty I've ever gotten and I'm proud. Jul 22, 2015
[Hide Comment] Yeh this is like a one move wonder basically, kind of fun, and really easy to protect. Easy bolt clips for every bolt for me at 6'2''. Sep 30, 2015
