Description:

To the right of Jake Said Ouch on the slabby section of Aiders. This is said to be one of the easier 5.8 leads at Blue Run, and it is the easiest route to the top of Aiders Rock.

3 out of 5 stars I had a hard time pulling up over the ledge

The bottom was pretty easy, and I thought that pulling op over the ledge after the first bolt would be easy too, but I had a hard time with it since it was so slopey. Finally figured out my beta and finished the climb. I really liked this climb, the top was full of jugs and lots of different ways ways to go up if you want to play around on it. I also liked the bolt placement.

3 out of 5 stars This one...

This has room for some variation after you get it top roped. The crux is at the second bolt once again and that ledge gets so dirty sometimes you really feel like you are scrambling for a good hold...but that's only if you've messed your footing up.
