Description:

Weird moves at the bottom 10 ft to nice moves above. Located above the terraced ledge just right of Black and Dicey. Not sure if it was named 27 tons for the amount of rock cleaned off of it or the amount of rock that can still come off of the chossy start. Overall a great route with a crappy beginning.

3 out of 5 stars Less than Ten Tons

A fun climb with some good movement but it felt pretty easy compared to some of the other 5.10a's in the area.
