i was stoked to have a blue camalot (3 inch) up top for a directional for my partner, i felt the route was R rated for sure, a fall from the crux puts you on the ledge.. proud onsight, i suggest you attempt the onsight before you TR it, great lead 50 yards from the road, felt like a real adventure w/ a lot of climbing in only 60 or 70 ft.

I was able to protect the crux pretty decently with a TCU. Falling once you get a little higher has a chance of decking, but you can place pro by that point. Maybe PG13-?

Good pro for the initial moves to get off the half-way ledge but poor pro above and very hard moves for 10a (did something break?). If you blow it you will deck!

Lost some hexes somewhere around here: 3 DMM Torque Nuts Blue, Red and Green. If found, let me know. I can compensate somehow and will pay for shipping.
