Description 

What would climbing be without a little dramatic controversy...

This line has still not been sent for a clean FA. The moves are big and burly and require grabbing onto some very small holds and pockets.

Maybe a little crumbly but I would guess could clean up with a bit of exposure...

Dont hate the player....hate the game

Just to the right of 'Be Yourself'

I thought this route was called Offshore Drilling.

This is a pretty fun route! The old sequence with the filled in pocket still goes, but it's pretty heinous with a razor sharp crimp. I found another sequence slightly to the left which is more fun and about V6/7. It's still a bit crumbly but certainly worthy of climbing I'd say.
