Pocket pulling leads to a distinct crux, followed by pulling the roof to the chains.

A pretty lackluster description for a great route! Steep sinker pockets lead to a great and well defined 3 bolt boulder problem on the steep shield. A sinker mono and a flury of memorable gastons! A good shake then leads to the fun roof with high feet and a maybe just a touch of thrutching. Second only to Algorithm!

Seriously one of my favorite routes of all time. Also, I find the original description to be a good match for the route

Basically every route in AF could be accurately described by the totally "history class boring" style description given here. I vote to impeach and instate Brad's description as the replacement as it is much more creative and interesting to read. While algorithm and pocket debris lack any true crux, you'll know when you're cruxing on this one as your giant hero bucket holds disappear into a strenuous mono/crimp/gaston nightmare, before finally relenting and and a cereal bowl pocket and a pre-columbus earthview of a flathold gets you over the roof without too much knee scraping.

There goes my on sight attempt bheller. Descriptions don't need be beta spray, just a brief description of what kind of climbing I'm in store for.

Well there it is...that comment means Igh has now made his first site contribution. I feel terrible that my "beta spray" which stole your "onsight attempt" was the catalyst.
