Living legend. He's thinking: is that run out 20' ...


Did this route once a long time ago; I think it was OK. Goes pretty much straight up. I think I used a #1 Camalot in a vertical crack, maybe another couple of smaller cams/medium nuts below it. Anyone with more details, feel free to let me know and I'll edit this.


In the middle of Petty Theft and Cold Hand Luke.


Gear to 2"?, 1 bolt about 50' off the deck, chains @ the top.

Varied climbing, steep jamming/stemming section in middle stands out. Gear is good where you need it. First piece is pretty high, but moves are there so not too heady. If your really concerned about the unprotected start begin in chimney and traverse over for the cool moves.

i'm pretty sure this is 5.8 at the hardest but Hendrixon usually lowballs it and he called it 5.9 so maybe i accidentally climbed around the crux? where is the hard part supposed to be? the steep crack in the middle?
