For lack of a better comparison, this climb is like a long slow jam by Funkadelic, with the funk coming low and deep and keeping the groove all the way to the top.

Sick route that goes on forever. Two awesome mini-roof bulges toward the top with good holds. Second bolt is tricky to clip if you are short and a fall onto that ledge could be kinda bad. Can't lower from the top anchors to the ground on a 70m rope - gotta lower to the 1st "anchor" (about 1/3rd of the way up the climb) and rappel from there back to the ground. Climber is out of sight after a few bolts and the river can make it a little hard to hear. Feels slightly run out but way worth it.. highly recommended.

Awsome route you can lower to the ground with a 70m rope barley my belayer had to untie the knot and I droped the last 2 feet to the ground.

Watch the rope drag on the way up. A 70 didnt quite get us all the way down.
