[Hide Comment] Beware loose rock on left block 3/4 way's up. Maybe better to stay right on crimps than awkwardly mantle flat block avoiding good but loose holds? this could use some cleaning for sure but a good pitch. Jul 7, 2013

[Hide Comment] Fun route with a variety of climbing throughout.
Seems like the ledge on the left has cleaned up quite a bit- didn't notice any loose rock. Sep 12, 2016
[Hide Comment] Climbing felt a little awkward to me. I think it's one of those routes that look better then it climbs. Aug 27, 2019

[Hide Comment] This Full Charge and Gooey Grasshopper are the best .11s at Lake Point. Great varied climbing. Jun 25, 2020

[Hide Comment] Yeah, that left block has some loose rocks on it. Makes it pretty exciting! This was my first .11b on-sight. It's a great one if you're looking for the same. LOTS of good rests the whole way up. Jul 11, 2021
