Night Moves. I believe this route is worthy of a Bob Seger namesake, and I think there will be a bunch of different sequences to send the tricky to read the crux. I originally thought it was hard 12, but it might end up checking in around at just straight up 12. Really who cares? Get on it, and see for yourself!

Cheers to everyone who helped work this thing out, especially Nolan Roberton, who had some great advice on where the line would go and where to put the key bolts around the crux.


This is the line in between Track Team and Reverse Cowgirl.

Fun route. Hard .12b or baby poo soft .12c.

Yeah, who knows what the rating is. I rated it 12d, 'cause it took me like 15 more attempts to get than Reverse Cowgirl (12c), which only took me a few tries.

I'm with Eric on this one, more mid-12 than hard 12. I could certainly see finding a harder sequence through the crux, as there are a lot of options that work, but with the beta, I found it wasn't too bad. Fun route, regardless of the grade.

Yeah, you might be right. Maybe I just had a weird sequence. Either way, regardless of rating, glad people are getting on it.
