After FAing this route, and much to Toyota's dismay, Christina got so hooked on climbing that she bought a Subaru. Again, to Toyota's dismay, her fiancé Ryan Millen was so impressed with her new car that he too bought a Subaru so he could become a real rally car driver.

I went ahead and rated this 5.6R because after you unclip those TR directionals, there is some pretty serious swing potential.

Spencer - Don't worry about the number of draws. Your lead climber / videographer can hang them for you. But remember: This is serious. "No one has ever done this before."

Approach beta? Looks like there could be some fifth class scaffolding to get past

The crux is always just below the D

It was an amazing experience, I'm so glad I did it!

This route will clean up nicely! still a bit chossy for now, check hands and feet before fully weighting.

Other than that sit back in your harness, weight that TR, and enjoy climbing for the reason we all got into it: Recognition!

Such an awesome and challenging route. The rock quality is amazing. 72 DPI printed sandstone on outdoor poster paper really brings out the exposure on the route.

GET ON THIS WHILE YOU CAN. You won't find this quality plastic anywhere else without having to shell out 75$ a month at your nearest gym...and even then you won't have the luxury of toprope directionals. Only downside is the crowds of tourists spraying unwanted beta from below.

I couldn't help but notice those anchor biners were not opposite and opposed...Toyota, tsk tsk.

After weeks of training, she should got the TRonsight. Oh well, the glory of the ffa will go too someone else.

I'm glad to see this route has gotten the recognition it deserves by being one of the top 20 classic climbs on mountain project. Worth the trip even though there are no comparable routes anywhere nearby except maybe the purple route at Brooklyn boulders.
