Who considers this to be "one of the best easy single pitch mixed climbs in Ouray"? The route has only been equipped since the spring of 2007 and most people, I'd bet, don't even know it's there, not to mention that it ain't mixed if there is no ice. FA- Jason Nelson. Same for the one right next to it.

Perhaps I was getting your expectations a little high. The route is well protected, steep, fun, easy, and easy to get to. What else needs to be said, right?

He can't help it...they all just flock when he gets on a route! BTW...see guideline #1. What are you mad at the world or something?

DR says: "are you f*#^ing kidding me? I understand you locals are like totes strong and everything, but really? Come on, have a little sympathy for us posers and realize not everyone gets to train 24/7 on sponsored $$$$. Are you really going to compare this climb to pormando's Magical M6 at the end of the canyon? This is at least M7 - - - !!! Keep it real, you SBs. Take that for sons o ($;&(;&&s or sandbaggers!!!"
