To my knowledge this route has never been repeated using Murray's sequence. A large dynamic move is made by starting with your hands on the two best holds and throws to the the largest hold in the middle of the route. The right foot hold Murray used has since broken. To line up for the dyno Bob kept his left foot under him and posted the right foot on a high crystal out right (right aligned lieback to throw from). Stactic moves finish up the route. The route climbs the wall using the direct line.


Located in the over hanging yellow rock just right center on the south face.

I'm starting to understand how this route is unrepeated this way... Variations have been done. I would be pretty surprised if someone has done it.
