This route has some cool crack climbing and some wild roof climbing and it is really long.


Starts in a bolted seam that leads to a good hand crack.

This route is Appetite For Destruction and was established by Scott Ayers. This is likely the longest route at the Homestead and requires a beefy 20 quickdraws. Use runners and/or back clean to reduce rope drag. Trend left after the short roof crack to stay on route.

I only had 18 and skipped a number without feeling like I was in danger. I only had one for the anchors so I lowered from the carabiners instead of my own draws.

IMO the only thing that detracts from this epic, highly varied line is some loose rock and bird doo. Note: full 70M required.
