Description 

Two cruxes and sustained 10 climbing make this route a must do on the North Forty. Probably the best route of its grade at the Ranch!

Location 

On the right side of the North Forty, look for the crowd.

Ok route, is it supposed to hit those jugs on the right? Didn't live up to the hype in my opinion.

This route is only about 50 feet long.

Climbs harder than Horseshoes and Hand grenades... Polished holds due to popularity make for comitting pulls on small holds. Cruiser route for the solid 5.10 climber.

Fantastic route that lived up to the hype!!!! The "two cruxes" really felt like one really long crux in the middle of good sustained climbing.

Polished, over rated. Horseshoes and hand grenades is by far more fun and has similar style and difficulty.

As the name implies, it's crimpy... Didn't really enjoy this climb - found 'Private Property' more interesting.
