Vitamin K

Begins stepping off a sizable boulder right into real climbing on the slabby lower half. The third bolt seems a bit high for safety, so dont blow it before you get it clipped. Cruise up to the roof on easy terrain. The roof section is easy intitially but gets more strenuous and the holds get smaller as you go up. Save some juice for the end, small holds and a difficult sequence guard the anchor.

[Hide Comment] This route is awesome and often overlooked by cocaine rodeo down yonder. This is a real beauty though with fun and varied climbing. Really fun when the route gets steep. Get er done... Jun 22, 2014

[Hide Comment] Great route - like a harder version of Acid Mother Temple, albeit a bit more straightforward. Do not pass this one up! Jul 8, 2016

[Hide Comment] No way in hell this is 5.12b. It's 5.10 climbing to a no hands rest before firing out a V4 boulder problem.

None the less, it is a great route. Didn't mean to come off as condescending, just don't think people should pass on this one if they think 5.12b is out of their wheel house. Jul 18, 2016

[Hide Comment] Welcome to Ten Sleep Spencer, there is a wide dispersion of difficulty within a single grade from crag to crag, developer to developer and even year to year. Take those little gifts with grain of salt, the next .12- might just hand you your own arse. Cheers! Jul 19, 2016

[Hide Comment] Replaced the anchor biners on 3 July 2017. The existing biners were worn about halfway through. Jul 5, 2017
