    This route has always looked impossible to me despite once rapping down it to see if actually had any holds. I'd love to know how you move through it, Peter, since from what I can tell yours is indeed the only red point on record.

    I want to report at least one confirmed repeat by Chris Way who took 30+ tries to link the upper crux by means of a heinous toss. Way to go!

    Joe Kinder thought this was .14b yeah sounds like East Coast boys can't hang with CO crimps. Nice job, Peter.

    Joe Kinder redpointed Primetime to Shine (for the 2nd ascent), calling it .14b. Perhaps you are mistaken.

    Joe thought Shine was 14b when he first did it. Primetime came along quite a bit later.

    Work this one back in 2001 and could never do it with out having to hang a few times but it's a new year and I'm feeling like I want some again!! I thought it to be a near perfect line!!!

    Worked this sweet hart today and got it put to me this time around!!! Still a great line I hope to complete this fall. It's a little crazy working out the beta now that the wall is grid bolted. Years ago when I 1st tried the line I believe it was the only one on that section of wall and had not yet seen an F.A.. Still a proud line not lacking in power moves all the way to the finish.

    Fantastic and sustained. Get you bouldering on. The top is not a gimme if your stupid pumped....

    I've been working this climb for over 7 months now. Just last session I did the first crux for the first time in 7 months. I've done all the moves, so now I'm starting to give redpoint burns. So excited to do this thing, the movement and positioning of the climb were fantastic, it should be on every hardman's list in CCC.

    Just a heads-up on this climb: sometime in March/April 2017 a small but critical hold broke on the crux that changes the difficulty quite a bit. This is the small sugar cube that was often used to get to the quartz pocket/edge. This may also affect the Prime Time to Shine linkup though perhaps less.
