Left of Bill's Route, around the arete. Really weird start, feels 9ish. Great crack/dihedral above to topout on a slabby wall.

5 out of 5 stars classic, but better have your back-up gun if this is at your limit.

many techniques required for this one. Before a climbing trip in the boonies, Broemel used to ask- "Did you bring your gun?" If you answered "Yes", then it was "Did you bring your back-up gun"?

3 out of 5 stars Not a casual 5.8

Nice sustained climb, though not as aesthetic as the neighboring lines like RJ Gold and Bill's Route. Awkward moves in the lower section can wear you out quickly; take advantage of rest stances when you can.
