Anybody here is working on a new route?
Two pitches of bolted slab (10b/c ish).

Looks like it can be extended for 3-4 more pitched to challenge Yose Crest Jewel ;-)

Anyway, we sampled a bit of it, got some feedback

By the way, thanks for replacing old leaper rap bolts

Will's guide shows a 5 pitch 10c R going up that slab called "Tuck and Roll" He said "a bit dicey till the bolts are replaced", so, it sounds like it's been there a while. Could be it's being rebolted so it looks new?

How is it? As good as Beacons?

That one is being worked on (fresh holes no bolts yet/fixed rope), should be fun once completed. One I am talking about is even more to the right, next to the big dirty left facing corner and just to the right of west gulley (#5 in the guide).

Not as good as beacons but not bad at all
