Comments: Also known as "Dasani". Wicked cool problem, seems like there are a few options at the start and for the huck/swing.

Comments: Crux is tough if you're shorter. At 5'7", it was a 3 points off dyno to the sloper. Felt low percentage. Quite stoked to send. Just out of curiosity, is there different beta other than: left hand on the 'block crimp' above the bad jug and right hand on the crimp undercling, work feet up as high as possible, then huck?

Comments: What a great route! The first 'rest' is awful for those of us that are short (5'7"), and the second 'rest' pumps out your calves. Barely got anything back. Made it that much sweeter to hang that finishing jug on link. This rig was well worth the effort.

Comments: Led first pitch sometime last year, went out to work Ten Digit last week and top roped through the 2nd pitch and found the largest pile of bat crap I have ever seen. And you have to get disturbingly close to it to continue making progress. I think it bubbled a few times. Sounds funny until it's right there in front of you...gross.

Comments: The first crimp in the crux (after the glued jug) isn't so bad to clip off of as long as you work your feet correctly.

Comments: Awesome! Probably the best of its grade that I have been on in a long time. Would recommend that everyone try it.

Comments: What a great route. Those roof jugs felt great. Fell pulling the lip on both my 2nd and 3rd burns. Those last few sloping crimps don't feel so good with a pump. Can't wait to get back and tick this one. Classic, for sure!
