4 out of 5 stars Greg Machine prevails

Finally the Greg Machine prevailed against the Torture Machine. Bagged the redpoint after working the route for awhile and figuring out a number of things.

3 out of 5 stars Torture Machine meets the Greg Machine

Got to the top with a couple of hangs - probably will make this my new Quarry project.

love this route. Good clipping stances and an exciting finish. Save some gas for the final push through the roof!

4 out of 5 stars wow

this is hard for 5.11d! Found some foot beta at move. Again likes its neighbor tough crimps to finish climb when you're fairly pumped. This would be one tough onsight let alone red point
