Because all the bolts were rap placed and in the wrong spots ???? Jul 12, 2015

As a slab lover, I really enjoyed this route. Similar to Ego Trip, but the crack escape at the top provides some relief and makes it much more possible to send than the super sustained Ego Trip. (Although after a 45-min long slab battle on lead, I almost fell out of the crack!) The bolt spacing at the bottom gets the heart pumping, but if you like hard slab I highly recommend this infrequently done climb. Jul 11, 2015

An interesting variation finish that has been tr's but not bolted (to my knowledge) is to avoid the finishing crack and go straight up the slab..11C ? and pretty sustained, maybe 30' or so
