Description:

Supposed to be the most popular route on Gus Fruh - we we're lucky and had the wall to ourselves. A couple large ledges are the main features and then the top is really thin. Crux is topping out, fun move past first bolt on start too.

4 out of 5 stars Not bad

Tough ending for a 9. Tried this on TR a few months ago. Decided I'd go ahead and just redpoint it.

2 out of 5 stars Fern Bar

First move is fun and a little strengthy. Next climb between the 2nd bolt and the rusty piton (easier alternative is to climb to the left of the 2nd bolt and traverse over). Gaining the chains is kinda a bitch.
