Climb through sustained and techy finger locks, using some occasional crimps along the way. Surprisingly pumpy and thoroughly enjoyable on excellent granite.

The route is so named in honor of Randy who did the first ascent a year ago and only recently told folks about it. More mysterious though is the rusted fixed pin from an unknown aid climber who likely visited these lands before climbing gyms were even invented...many reputable climbing scholars have dedicated their life's research to casting light into this black hole of MN climbing history and no suitable theory has yet to emerge. A true enigma.


The obvious, thin finger crack to the 20 feet to the right of Orange Lichen Line.
