Description:

This enjoyable line begins 10 feet right and around the corner from the previous two lines. It is the first line on the main east face of Curbside. Climb up through sloping holds to a large ledge. Pull off the ledge into a short section of steeper rock to reach the chains. Information obtained from redriverclimbing.com

Felt a little easier than some RRG 10Ds, but the movement was good.

3 out of 5 stars odd route

I had a hard time with this route, not sure why. Really good rest that is really dirty. Tell your belayer to be on the lookout for dirt and rocks./

3 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, bus somewhat fragile

Came within kissing distance of the chains during onsight attempt, grabbed a big bucket to clip the anchors, and discovered that the bucket was full of water (it was raining). Should have just stayed there and clipped anyway, but water spash in my face sort-of startled me. Anticipated the water bucket on the second attempt and side-pulled on a different pocket instead...
I expect that some holds will break on this route, especially the thin shelves right before the ledge.
