better than it looks- i thought the crimps were all pretty good- which says something because i cant crimp at all. one hang at the crux for me on TR- i'll probably try and fire it on lead next time i'm out that way.

On 12/7/10, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced the 1st, 3rd, and 4th bolts on this route along with the anchor. All bolts are 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece. The anchor is equipped with quicklinks and rap rings.

This route beat me down. Could not get the 3rd clip, had it at eye level numerous times and just couldn't do it. Free red wildcountry wire gate to whoever wants it at the third bolt!

Well, good to know you wont crater if you pop just before clipping the 3rd bolt! Nice job, dude- you'll get it, once you get that gaston, its pretty much over. (your right foot shouldnt be that high, btw- and your left foot looks low, fwiw)

this is an ok route, but no harder than .11a especially if the route next to it goes at .11d. I am a bit tall tho
