4 out of 5 stars Burly Route

First time out to erock and had a go on this route. Debated rapping down to clip the first bolt, but decided to just climb up to it. Those first moves aren't all that hard, but if you screw it up, you are in big trouble. The crimpy crux was pretty fun, the holds get bigger once you make it to the arete. As I approached the last bolt, I grabbed a great left sidepull and leaned right to clip. Suddenly I thought I felt my hold move, but wasn't sure. To be safe, I shifted back to the left and just then, the entire hold broke loose in my hand, maybe a 6 lb rock. My belayer was directly below and looking into the sun, she wouldn't have had a chance to dodge. I slammed my chest into the wall and managed to trap the rock, then toss it to safety. After that, another smaller hold broke loose, and I managed to finish the route without bloodshed! I didn't realize that would be a big concern with granite.

5 out of 5 stars WOW!!!!

we accidently top-roped this when searching for the turkey-hooks. it was absolutely nasty, but in a good way. we had no idea what it was called, or the rating till we got home. definitely an 11b though.
