There is a little drama regarding the FA on this route. TT and JH had placed all but the bottom 2 bolts when Eddie wandered in and sent (snaked). That being said, credit should be given to the equipping party. Good line too! Dec 3, 2017

Great, hard route for anyone looking to get a pump. the crack has cleaned out well, and pick placements have improved drastically with traffic. Be prepared to be on your tools for most of it; the feet are very bad.

I would recommend stick clipping the first bolt, as you should with all eklutna dry tool routes.

I believe Todd Tumolo and Josh Hoeschen have the FA of this route. Dec 3, 2017
