DescriptionThis route follows an overhanging intrusion of featured, black-varnished rock. The moves are unusual with a tricky crux, but very well-protected, and high on the fun factor.
This route was discovered by prolific route prospector Todd Swain, who toproped the line in 1990, but somehow it flew under the radar for all these years; it's a real gem.
I'd give it 2 or 3 out of 5 stars. As a bonus, when you're getting lowered down, clip the top 3 bolts of Texas Tea and give it a go on TR!
