Man, was I glad I TRed this one instead of leading it. Basically a 50-foot lieback on gravelly, crappy rock that probably wouldn't clean up even if it got climbed more than once a year, which it probably doesn't. The rock is so crumbly that I would be pretty concerned about gear pulling on lead. Your right foot is your best friend, and the only thing you'll be able to bear jamming on this route.

probably a good climb to practice laybacks on...if you do them wrong here, your feet will quickly fly out on the crumbling choss. Also good practice if you have designs on climbing other crumbling choss-piles.
