5 out of 5 stars RAD!

Bad to the bone route. I did the traverse and just walked a #2 BD across... worked fine. I think you want to have some gear doing it. I did at least. My second worked out a fixed nut at the crux-- needed to be done, but he thought it was something I placed (sorry bro) so he had to take there, haha. Funny story. No way this is 10d, but it is a FINE route.

5 out of 5 stars 5 stars!!!

Great climb that is really long. You don't really need to place any gear in the horizontal as it is pretty casual.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: gregory_huey on 2009-10-24 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Crossed !

Came back for another try and got the redpoint today - am super happy. My idea of racking all my finger-sized stoppers on their own draws worked very well. In fact, after finishing the easy traverse part of the (indirect) start, I used only stoppers on the entire finger-crack. I also TRed the direct start - its hard and R.
