The first crux is at the first bolt. The second is about half way up.


Right of Soundtrack to Failure.


9 bolts.

It was fun, but my right shoulder still hurts from hammering. Hopefully, people will think that it is not too tightly bolted or too run out. May 30, 2015

Ha is a sandbagger!!!! ;) It's only 10d if you skip the V13 boulder problem at the first bolt and avoid the 5.11 climbing above. J/K, love it! Great route, Ha, and that's no joke. Jun 8, 2015
Tim- You crack me up! Now we're even: you gave Funky Monkey 11a & I think it is a little harder;) I think FLO is 10d because I recently did Boldly Departed again & think that it is a couple letter grades harder than FLO, but maybe I'm wrong. I'm glad that you did it & think it's a good route:) Jun 8, 2015
Too tightly bolted??? I'm with Tim, survival mode is the first thing that comes to mind. He, he, he... oops, I meant Ha, ha, ha.

Seriously though, it seemed like it was bolted just fine. Not over or under bolted. It is a little tricky to protect the climbing up to the third bolt given the logical clip opportunities, but I thought it made sense the way it was done.

Good job Ha. Jun 13, 2015

Too tightly bolted??? WTF, I'm with Darrell on this one. It's just right, you want one before you get one time and again but the clips are in logical places. Good work sandbagger! I highly recommend this route. Oct 8, 2016
Hey Jeff- Glad you got on it! Feel free to tell me what you really think;) Did you finish putting up your route? Oct 8, 2016
