In the Wasatch climbing guide by the Ruckmans it says that Lance Bateman and Ben Folsom did the first ascent. Lance deserves all the credit as he bolted it and led it free. I followed on the first ascent, and can't remember if I was able to do it free cleanly at that time or not. I went up there last year and was unable to do the crux move.
Cool temperatures will help on this climb for sure. The crux sequence above the ramp is really good! Climbing on the pink and orange rock is really nice.

Anyone know if the run out to the 1st bolt and before the second bolt can be supplemented by small cams or other pro? It looks like a stellar line and I am hoping to try it in the spring but was wondering how much of a hardman ill have to be. Ha.
