Comments: I couldn't agree more. But marking it as a variation of the 5.8 seems weird cause it is such a very different line. I'm not attached to it but its there if anyone wants to change it up a bit.

Comments: As a follow up to the above discussion:
I have bolted and climbed a 2 bolt variation finish through the roof above this route. It is powerful and technical for a shot variation. I think it is worth while and I hope others agree! Check it out once the peregrines are done doing their nesting thing. And don't forget to warm up on Juno a fun new 5.10 I added just left of this one.

Comments: I took an onsight attempt on this one today. Just gotta say FANTASTIC CLIMB on perfect rock, hard compression and slopers, though provoking sequences... I could go on but I'll say this... Gotta be one of the best climbs added in the last few years... Unfortunately my tank was low going in to it and I melted off a perfect hold at the last bolt... I will be back soon to do it justice

Comments: As the name implies, Pretty good climbing... I myself looked at bolting this back when I did The Friend Zone but I wasn't comfortable bolting so close to the crack... That being said I was happy to climb it and take advantage of the convenient TR on VNC...

Comments: It seems like a key old broke off in the crux, the upper left-hand gaston was missing... I was able to do it with similar beta but it felt more difficult...

Comments: I got on for the first time this recently and was blown away by the overall fun-factor of it! I was a bit wasted and burned out at the crux but I can not wait to get on it again!

also, the draws are so ready for replacement its a little scary. I plan to replace them soon but thought I should mention it. As for the nasty old extended anchor, I removed that a while back while rapping in to shoot photos of predator.

Comments: getting used to climbing in the cold has helped keep me sane during our long New England winters... but if everyone did it we wouldn't have the cliffs to our selves I guess haha

Comments: Yeah Torie and I both still lean toward 5.6 using this beta. But no one likes a sandbag so I just figured I'd change it to 5.7, keep people happy.

I knew an old duffer who was fond of saying "Common sense isn't so bloody common anymore now is it." sounded great in his British accent.

Comments: Oh cool, nope my line was to the left of that through the crack. I wasn't at all concerned about FA credit just saying that I had chosen not to report climbing on the cliff cause I didn't think the locals would like it... Though as I said the trail might make my old point moot... now we both have lines to do haha

Comments: Sorry I'm late to this party. And I hate to be that guy but, I did climb much of the line you are referring to many years ago though it used to be solid rock all the way until they came and chipped it all to hell (grumble grumble).I decided not to report it cause I didn't think I should encourage other people to climb right off the road, maybe the trail makes it a better place to climb? I don't know. Anyway, glad you are out adventuring :)
