A big hold at the crux came off pretty easily yesterday. Didn't really change the grade. Luckily there were no other climbers around or someone could have been hurt.

Best warm up on RR. Definitely harder than .10b

The route is no longer a 10. Because of some jugs falling off the top the route is now harder at the top and is now an easy 11.

  • **Looks like we are back to looking for the best warm up for that wall.***

Great route! It's 8 bolts to the chains and another 8 for the extensions. Good rest 1/4 the way up and good rest at the chains, then just fight the pump!
