Description

This route is a solid test piece and the best route of its grade at the Tor. The movement will definitely make you Happy and none of the moves are harder than 5.9, but they stack up quick. With a crux at the end and a lot of different ways to pull it you will be happy to lower off and tie back in and try it again. The best way I've found to do it is just "Lock It Off".

Location

Unless I'm mistaken, isn't this the ONLY route of its grade at the Tor? I'm not up-to-date on the new routes. Feb 18, 2013

This is a good warm-up route for those whose redpoint projects may be the formerly easiest routes at the Tor, like 'The Power of Eating' or 'Automagic.' Fun movement on mostly big holds; I enjoy the use of the 'natural' embedded cobbles. Jan 3, 2016
