Looks fantastic, thanks for putting it up.

In the FA info, you have both a Jim and a Tyler Thompson. Same person? And what is the relation between the "established by" and the "FFA"?

Jim is a local (he and another guy took over publishing Dallas's guidebook for Mt. Erie). He has all the gear for putting in bolts so with his help, we put the line in during August of 2015. I was not in great climbing shape and failed to repoint the second pitch after multiply tries. Tyler is Jim's son and he had chance to climb the route clean before I got back to Mt. Erie. Therefore, I can't claim the First Free Ascent (FFA) of that pitch; that goes to Tyler. Thanks for asking for the clarification.

Thanks Calvin for the clarification.

It's nice knowing some of the history of a route as well, as you provided.

Just checked this out today. With a little more traffic, could be one of the best routes at Erie. Definitely some loose/less-than-confidence inspiring blocks on the 10c pitch but overall very cool. Nice work.
