Not much. This route has marginal placements connected with MANY bat hooks. This route has ground fall potential anywhere on P1. P2 has 80-100' fall potential. No one has rated a Glass route A5 and I won't start.

Description:

Between Rowins and and Brain Dead.

P1: Climb the short crack under Rowins ramp; where it ends, head right through a few features on heads and rurps. After a bolt, follow bathooks; ground fall protected by heads (yeah right). Follow many holes and heads to the belay.

P2: follow holes and rivets to a small corner; small cams and lost arrows. When the corner ends, follow holes up and right to a bolt, then a few heads to the belay.

This route finishes just short of Brain Dead's third pitch and doesn't continue past top of P2. Rap the route say hooked to P1 to get back on rappel. YOU WILL NOT REACH THE GROUND IF YOU TRY TO RAP WITH 200' FROM P2.

4 out of 5 stars The Mayor

Hat's off to those hardasses that out up this route! Although I would never rate it A4+, more like C2 or C2+ at the most.
