Comments: I've been wanting to try this one but the first bolt is missing (again?), and I can't bring myself to commit without it.

Comments: I found this climb to be top notch for the Springs area! Fun and varied climbing with spectacular views. However, I have climbed this route twice now, and I am glad to see the consensus going up. I found the move out of the roof to be very, very tricky. Even after I trained and came back at it in better shape, I still had to pull on a piece to get it. There is certainly potential for a dangerous fall onto the flake below the roof, but as long as your pro holds (unlike mine), you shouldn't hit it... more >>

Comments: This was a fun route for me. It is surely its own route at least for the first 30ft. till you attain the ledge. To minimize the danger of swinging into Crynoid Corner, I could easily reach out from a ledge in the corner to clip the BWL Wall (I'm 5'10") and then climb the route proper. It is a little run out above the second bolt on the wall to get to the ledge, but it is pretty easy climbing if a bit sharp.
