This is an overlooked climb that I think is great. Nice rock down low, to a steep section, to a bouldery crux. It only suffers from a strange ending with funky cilmbing, and the FA's drill died before he could place a two bolt finish and he never made it back. It would be best if the last bolt (bolt 9) was pulled and bolt 8 was doubled up and left as the finish.

Ivy Mike was the name of the first large scale nuclear fusion test.

There are anchors on this route. This was the first time on the route but it looks like the anchors are above 9 so the ending continues to be funky.

This is a pretty unique climb. It requires a lot of strange body positions, but it is really fun in my opinion.
