Again, I hate to admit it, but I was the guy that retro-bolted this route in 1994. I worked this route on TR for a while until I had it dialed pretty good, then my friend Rob Lee and I rented a gas-powered hammer drill and put the bolts in there. I managed to RP it pretty quick, and I have to admit this was one of the most fun mixed 5.12 routes I have ever climbed. the moves at the beginning are awesome, and the well-protected (thanks to me) crux at the top is pretty swell too. The only thing that would make this route better is exposure - but the Mills will always be a beautiful place so I'm not complaining. Pretty awesome that Rob C made the first ascent of this route under much more dangerous and intimidating conditions! Hats off Rob :)
Fell once at the beginning, and once at the crux. Took me forever to figure out the sequence for the damn climb, but then when I finally started to get comfortable with it, and know that I'd be able to redpoint, I got posted to New Brunswick......I'll stop by in Sept on my way to Borden and send that motha!!!
