    Fun route. A little mungy near the end. More traffic will clean the route.

    I found this route to be Very Fun! My friends OX, and Falcon agreed that this one is as good as it looks. Thanks to " the two Kirks " that were there when we arrived, and gave a brief tour. We all agreed that this route was solid for the grade...10b. Thanks..nice route. Young Doug.

    Not mungy any more. But don't be fooled into thinking it gets easier at the top as it gets less steep.

    Best route I've done on this wall so far. Crazy jug haul for the first half, then it totally changes nature for the second half. Techy slab. Loved the whole thing.

    Great vertical climb, fairly sustained. Fun movement through the big horizontals!

    Good, fun route. The climbing seemed to be jug, balance, jug, jug, balance, etc.

    Seemed kind of tough for a 10-, I tried to stay more center and left than right, so maybe that made it harder. Plus, it was climb number 5 or 6 of the day.

    I think it's more like balance, JUG, JUG, mantel, balance, balance, mantel, balance, and anchors. A great route for getting a bunch of different muscle groups going.

    Nice warm up lead climb, my tough part was about halfway up. Gto a bit thin and had to reach a ways for a short guy. Fun climb, solid.

    Fun jugs to start. Tougher on top. Thought this was 5.9/5.9+ when I did it, but I can see how this could be rated 5.10a too.

    Howdy, if you were the guys who stuck around when we bailed from lightning last night, let me know if you were able to grab those draws. There's beer and some of The Clinic's finest in it for a return. Email: jmluker at gmail dot com.
