The anchors on this route do not seem to be on top, but about 10 feet down from the top. What's the deal with that? Sep 7, 2013

I believe you can either rap from the anchors there (on top of B.S.) or finish to the top on Wild Dream....I think one finish on the upper headwall is plenty..

This route provides some steep, dynamic moves and well placed bolts. Final moves the color and quality of the rock change which possibly had something to do with the anchor placement. Save your rope, clip the anchors and come down. You don't need to dome out on this route. Want to hit the summit....do the neighboring route....once the bolts are replaced. Feb 9, 2014

Nabbed an early lead of this one (although they all are at this point). The movement is good, but the rock brings the star count way down. Its bad enough when the crystals are so big they chew your tips like piranha, but when they come along for the ride embedded in your skin, it really brings the fun level down.

Had to take some of the starch out of my buddy KC so I now refer to this one as "Nightmare AKA Black Stallion". Feb 10, 2014
