If you are staring at the start of Blockbuster (big blocky rail), look right and crawl down as far as you can to find the starting holds for Waiting for Guntess...The beginning boulder problem to reach the start of Blockbuster is about 10 moves traversing out and left with the crux being a few hard pulls to establish on that blocky rail. Also for the full 13 points you're gonna need to stay off the arete (when continuing up Blockbuster) and on the small pockets of the overhang(I don't make the rules, Reardon did)...Thought I'd be detailed cus no one seems to know about this route. Also, Guntess=Matt Samet.

When I first walked up to the climb for the first time I didn't realize that the route started all the way down right. So it starts right of New Release and down the chasm thing and you start with two opposing side pull jugs. Climb straight up then left. Keep traversing left until you're on the blocky rail start of New release, then do New release. I did the extention climbing up then traversing in 13 moves. Note: most people work the start with pads before doing the whole extention. Also, the first bolt is the first bolt of New release so be very careful climbing into New Release without pads (have your belayer spot your head!)

Calling this a route is such a joke! Lets see, start by doing a crappy dark boulder problem and traverse trying hard to avoid "dabbing" aka standing on the ground and walking, then climb an eliminate route not using all the holds. I'm sorry but how can anyone take this thing seriously?
