    Eds. This original post was deleted by the submitter. See info below.

    Per Joe Collins: Freeline does the boulder problem start of Surf's Up, continues up the seam of Fraid line, then traverses right at the old bolt into the crux finish of The Evictor. I have heard the grade reported as 13a or 13b.

    Per slevin: "Freeline" is the complete first pitch of the original aid route done here by Ron Olevsky in the early 1970s (A3 crux right off the ground back then). It has been reported as both the "Olevsky Route" and "Aid Line".

    The first reported free ascent of pitch one was by Justen Sjong in early 2000 (pitch two was freed by Chris Reveley in the 1970s). The crux is still the first 15 feet, then a long 5.12 section to the bolt, then right into the crux of what is now The Evictor.

    Location 

    It is to the left of The Evictor & Center Route.

    I'm dying here! What's this new line?

    Freeline does the boulder problem start of Surf's Up, continues up the seam of Fraid line, then traverses right at the old bolt into the crux finish of the Evictor. Have heard the grade reported as 13a or 13b. I think it was sent several years ago if I'm not mistaken.

    For the record, the actual name of this route is "The Final Eviction", named by Justen Sjong after his FFA in 2000. Regardless of whatchacallit, it's an amazing line that's well-protected and super fun!

    One of the best pitches around Boulder. Either Fraidline is 12+ or Freeline is 13b. They can't be the same grade, there is a letter grade between the two.

    In reference to my previous comment, in regards to Fraidline... after speaking with Steve Levin, like many people, I cut out left up high to meet with the finish of "Surf's Up" once the horizontal is reached. He suggested that Topher went straight up the face, and he speculated that it may be another 12c crux, still running it out over the RPs.
