Climb the 40' overhanging face at the left end of the wall on small underclings and sidepulls with bad feet. First climbed in the early 80s and is unrepeated!

5 out of 5 stars Did not send, worked it with friends

This route has only seen one ascent (Rob Chisnall). He held the world record for one arm/one finger pull ups, and you'll probably need that kind of strength if you are ever going to send this route (saw him do one arm/one pinky pull ups when he was in his late 40's). Not sure exactly when the first ascent was, but it would have been one of the first 13c's done in Canada, and if it is graded anything like the rest of the routes at the Mills it would not surprise me at all if it was 13d/14a. Spent a few weeks working it with climbers who have climbed 13's, and no one came close to sending. The first 15 - 20 feet is great, slopey ledges on an overhang across and up to a vertical seam. The next 20 feet looks like an aid route. Super thin, with no feet. Wish I could have seen the FA because the route looks so sick it would be amazing to see someone send. Rumour has it Sonnie Trotter stopped by and tried to send, with no success. I've got $500 for anyone who can redpoint with me watching.
