Thanks guys. Superb line for sure. Really John, this route is bouldering on a rope (no "finger locks" or "hand jams" to be found). So I maintain my pro-boulder stance despite appearances. :)

Kris are you making fun of my newfound love of the toprope?

It would be an incredible lead, hats of to Huston, Groth, and Tommy D.

Yah... No gear to be had at that Swordfighter move.....
Layout about 20 big fat bouldering pads and the base and make sure ya land in the middle....

I was not making fun. You can't quite tell it'sa top rope. I looked at the pic and seriously thought "damn, he led this!!". Followed by "wait a minute, where's the gear??".

Like Burt said: 20 (at least) bouldering pads and pillows, numerous climbing helmets placed on key body parts, and a deployable baloon.

Mike soled it with a knotted rope to grab nearby if he fell.

I beleive Mike also soloed it at least 2 other times without the rope hanging there.
