Comments: Kudos to the FA's on putting up this creative route. Super fun, super safe, and super awesome position. The traverse, while very mellow, added a lot to the character of the route, and added a bit more time off the ground.

The crux pitches had a few solid, sweet 9 moves, but nothing harder.

The exit move was cool, and the rock quality wasn't as bad as I was expecting.

The first pitch can be a bit of a cluster with traffic on super slab, but you... more >>

Comments: WARNING - LOOSE BLOCK: Did the route last weekend. There is a gnarly loose block near the top of the first pitch (If you stretch it all way to the ledge in the dihedral, way past the edgehogs anchor). It is in a 6-8" crack in the dihedral, about 15ft below the ledge at the top of the first pitch. Long, lean, and arrow shaped, the block is about the size of a large bread loaf, and is determined to launch out of the crack. I used a cam to keep it wedged in there while my 2nd came up. We would've t... more >>

Comments: My partner and I replaced the hanger on the 2nd pitch yesterday. There are no threads protruding from the nut - the bolt just wasn't long enough, unfortunately. That said, the nut tightened flush with the end of the bolt, and there's a shiny new hanger. Should be good to go for a while. I know I felt better busting the move with a solid clip.

You guys owe me $3.50. :)

Comments: I climbed this the same day as Murf. I wasn't sure what it was, but it proved to be a pretty nice little diversion while in the area.

At 5'6", I had to s-t-r-e-t-c-h quite a ways to clip the bolt off the ledge...but it's all good.

Comments: I'd been eyeballing this climb for awhile. I've never seen anyone climb this route...which is surprising to me now that I've climbed it. A very, very nice route that I'll be repeating again and again. Highly recommended.

Comments: Really fun, long route and great confidence booster for the grade (to be honest though, I'd call it a 10c or d with my hands).
