Description 

Sean, Doyle, and Scott Griggs put up some new routes on Dynamic Wall in January 2010. They think this one goes at 5.10b. It felt more like 5.10c to me and a few others. It has an interesting second clip on the flake!

Location 

Down the stairs and left. This is the last route on Dynamic Wall before the trail begins to go up again.

Protection 

7 bolts (When you get to the 8th bolt in the roof, don't clip it. The anchors are just around the corner, up and to the right. Lean out, you'll see them.)

The "8th" bolt, under the roof, was actually placed by Walt Wilkinson in order to do an alternate roof finish on the route to the left.

One of my favorites at kings bluff. This is one of the longer routes in this climbing area.

Anyone else think clipping the 3rd bolt can be a little PG 13 with the ledge? I guess if your belay lets out some slack before you take a whipper it is clean.
