Description 

If a classic climb contains glorious jug hauling on granite fins and knobs, wild dynamic moves, a techy top to keep life exciting, all done over the water while your buddy belays out of a raft in the Canadian wilderness, then look no further!

This excellent line will range in difficulty for folks of different heights, especially because of the opening crux at the second bolt. Those taller than 6 feet could find the given grade soft, those under 5'6" will likely find the route quite rowdy. Regardless, everyone can be guaranteed to be all smiles after this one. And if not, you may want to consider golfing instead.

Protection 

5 bolts

Originally called Swamp Monster, this line now looks to be doable. What was once before thought super hard to impossible (no one really knows why that was thought), the opening crux is probably hard 5.12. I did all of the moves recently (Oct 2016) up to the lip, but after that it was soaking wet and sloppy. I don't recall anything there looking too difficult, when Kurt Hager and I bolted the top portion a few years back. Another rig that will surely see an FA next season!
