Steve, too many good routes in the Tan Corridor for that untie/retie stuff!

FYI, 3rd bolt may have been set incorrectly. Will likely loosen regularly, it was spinning, and we gave it a quick crank to reset the bolt, but it looks like it needs to be re-drilled. This bolt is your protection for the crux move. Great route! Sustained. Where do I send some donations for the Mussy hooks?

Third bolt appeared fine last night. We torqued it, and the rest of the route with a torque wrench to ensure they don't loosen up again.

I did this the same day as "The Opportunist" and "No Opportunity Missed", and I thought this one was better. What the description calls unrelenting pump factor I call sustained low 5.11 moves that make this a joy to climb. Great rock and wonderful little ledges everywhere. It's a must do for this crag for the 5.11 climber.

I thought this was just as good as the Opportunist, but there was a noticeable crux for me, which made it slightly harder than the Opportunist. After the crux, it was just trying to hold on as you fight the pump all the way to the anchors.
