Fine practice in overhang crack. Did it OS in late 90' and few times after.

4 out of 5 stars fun route

too bad its not a little longer. But i guess thats the case with all the trad routes at the falls. I think me and sanmar were the first to climb it in awhile. I dont know what she is complaining about though, i cleaned all the spider webs off before she came up.

4 out of 5 stars Great trad route

Very interesting moves... A little overhanging at the bottom and then you get into this dihedral that wants to spit you out. Better be a solid trad leader to do this one.
