Description

Unknown Route perhaps put up by Cullen Kirk and others around 2013/2014. Found Route name and grade on the Wayback Machine, but couldn't get a photo or description. I have climbed what I think is Long Iron, and the line is awesome, so I'll provide information assuming that the line I climbed is Long Iron.

Amazing long varied crack.  Starts low by New Potato Caboose.  A couple potentially loose blocks still exist here, though I cleaned a bunch.  Start on crack with jugs, climb up and gain clean corner.   Follow clean corner through cruxy thin section to awesome double crack at top.  

This line needs some cleaning/traffic for the lichen.  It will be excellent once it really cleans up.

Location

Starts a few feet left of New Potato Caboose.  See photos

Protection

Best recollection is triple set from green c3 size to #2 with a #3 or two.  Bring extra and suss it out for yourself.

I (re?) cleaned this line and rope soloed it last year. It felt hard for the grade and might feel more like 11+ with some more lichen scrubbing. It is an amazing long line and will be one of the best with a little traffic. May 24, 2018
