Start out to the first bolt of vision, then follow the chossy slab left of vision. After the fourth bolt is clipped, the rock quality improves greatly, featuring lots of pockets and edges of all sizes. The climbing is continues until the last bolt where more jugs appear with a good run to the anchors. Climbs is in the shade till about 12pm.


Farthest left route in the dihedrals, starting with the same start as vision.

Theres a lot of people who might agree with you Micah, but there is also a lot of locals that have been looking at bolting that line for a while. As well as dozens of people who have personally thanked me for putting up that route. While one hold is shared on the entire line and one bolt is somewhat close to Vision, it is not a absolute squeeze job and should be bolted in my opinion.

Have you even been on the route, because Ive never seen you at smith since before that line was around. Pretty negative comment as well for a mountain project administrator.

Can you move the one especially squeezed bolt left so it's not so close? That would make it feel much less squeezed, it wouldn't feel like it's marring Vision that way.

Just cause one bolt is close doesn't constitute an "absolute squeeze job". That bolt is close because of lower quality rock in the area and that was the only spot to accommodate a safe bolt. I could reinvestigate into finding harder rock out left. In the meanwhile, people should know the difference between an absolute squeeze job and not. Cognition shares 1 hold with vision and is almost entirely an independant line, not an absolute squeeze job. You should climb it before you bag on it man.

I never said that because ur an admin u are not entitled to an opinion, but as soon as you comment openly about my route, expect to hear my honest opinion as well. Especially if its a negative comment.
