Psyched someone did this. Ian and I were looking at it years ago and never got back. Please tell me you get to go through the swirly-gig-hueco-pocket-chickenhead-thingy's!

Yeah Brad, did it last fall, anytime you want a catch let me know. People have been on it but not sure if its had a second ascent. You would be the man to put that to rest.
Had a very nice cuppa at yours the other day, the place looks great.

Clay, I think I used one of the holds you mentioned somewhere on the route.

One of Andy's better newer lines. Steep, to vertical, to slab. Good rock and fun. Quit doing the same old things in the Green "A" and go do this one.

Great Route! Like all LCC sport routes it is much easier when you know where the micro crimps are hidden.
