Description [Suggest Change]

This is great climbing on the best chunk of rock in the canyon. It is hands down the best route on the Entrance Wall! Climb perfect blue/grey rock on sidepulls and fat pinches with maybe only 2-3 down-pulling holds on the entire route. The climbing is powerful and engaging from the bottom to the top.

It should be noted that there was an abandoned line of studs (bolts with the hangers taken off) a few feet to the left. The studs were pounded in, and the line was redirected a few feet to the right, keeping it on the steepest and best part of the wall.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is the furthest left route on the wall.

Protection [Suggest Change]

5 bolts plus fixed anchors.

Drew isn't even thirty yet. The name should probably be "Dirty and Almost Thirty". May 6, 2013

Nice ascent. Those studs were left from a pair of routes put in by Jay Petzbolt in the early '90s called Gildenstern & Rosencrantz. These routes never really caught on, and I am glad to see something new. Love the new development. May 26, 2013
