Description

The Conns' finest acheivement! Done, of course, with only tight sneakers, 80' rope, pins, and down climbing the route. This has always been a mind blowing accomplishment. Now, all you need to know is...is that you should climb this route! But bear in mind that this is the Conns' hardest route, and their proposed 5.8 is not a modern 5.8. Please be confident in your ability and route finding skills. Leaving no description of the line is part of a traditional tribute to Herb and Jan. So please, no beta spraying here.

9+/10a. The R part is only 5.7 or 5.8 the crux is well protected. Bring a couple of big pieces. Great Route. Sep 1, 2015
