5 out of 5 stars Add this to the "to do list" on your next visit.

Great position, well laid out. Book calls it 80', more like 90+. Pogue needs to recieve awards for the quality of routes he installs. Thanks Kevin. Make the trip up to Jug Wall too, you will be glad you did...

Get over yourselves and just give the man thanks!

5 out of 5 stars Thanks Kevin Pogue, et al.

Major thanks to the folks who took their time to make a great route! (quit saying too many bolts, y'all look silly, just don't clip 'em all and feel tough about yourselves) I enjoy the route each time I visit. Great route PERIOD. I am generally annoyed with Bingham, and others, who constantly make comments like "more bolts than a small town hardware store" and "so many bolts your grandmother could lead it". Instead, just give thanks to folks like Pogue for great routes that we all can walk away from to live our lives, Enough. Give thanks or simply be quiet.

Great route. Do Jug Massacre and Mantle Dynamics too, because again, you will be able to walk away after having done the routes (not having broken your ankles on a high start or run-out crux...).

5 out of 5 stars Try staying on the face through the half moon

So, cruise the bottom, left edge occasionally for left hand/foot, get to the half moon left hand and side pull the right corner, feet match high right, then stand to crimp on the high right, left foot flags slightly. Pull to jugs. Solid 10b this way. Enjoy!

4 out of 5 stars Feel the exposure.

This route is like Easy Off and others for exposure due to its proximity to the edge of the lower cliffs... Long way down looking over your shoulder... Classic must do.

4 out of 5 stars Tough start.

Tough start to balancey mid-moves. Great finishing moves on the top 1/3. Too much fun for 40 feet.

4 out of 5 stars Thinker it is!

This thing throws you immediately into a bouldery overhanging start, then balancey moves, then reaches, then fingers, then liebacks, then stems, then... shall I go on? And all that in only 40 feet!

3 out of 5 stars Really, it was too easy for him...

This route can go 5.6 if you stem or 8-9 if you use the face only. Short, but good warm up for the cove of red rocks with the best routes in the area.

5 out of 5 stars Did I lose my steel pulse?

OK, last year I did not mind the runout on the crux pitch, this year I did. Bring .75" gear for a small overlap bulge if you want tumble protection. I got scared. My manliness was called into question. Be safe, bring a cam. - Spinner bolt on pitch 3, still solid.
