One of the easiest routes in the Lode, and still pretty stout for a 5.11 climber. It felt pretty doable for the first couple bolts. There are plenty of decent holds. But this thing just never. lets. up. I can hold my own pulling big roofs, but this sustained over-vertical stuff is relentless. By mid-route my arms were torched. I finally decided to throw in the towel after blowing the fourth clip in grand fashion, twice, and riding a pair of whistlers that each brought me ass-to-eyeballs with my belayer.
For Red regulars, I'm sure this is a cakewalk, but for the uninitiated, it's an eye opener.

|This route provides a great break from the monotony of the Undertow wall. Classic tech movement from the ground up. I don't think it really quite qualifies for 5.11|

|Brilliant route with fun movement, and a great varietal addition to the crag. However, calling it anything above 10b/c is quite a stretch. This route contains virtually no pump, just all technique. If you've ever led a 10, get on it!|
