Description:

Developed by Rona, one of the world's few or only pre-menopausal route developers. She had too many injuries to make the FA. Let's wisher her a speedy recovery. The grade is on only a couple opinions.

3 out of 5 stars Menopause Mania

Route feels very similar to the one to its right, probably same grade too. Start is a tad bit trickier though.

4 out of 5 stars crux at the finish

a very nice line with fun features and a balancing finish.

A variation to the finish is to move out right at the finish to the anchors on the next route over. I've dubbed that variation "Hormone Replacement Therapy". :)

5 out of 5 stars great jug haul

Great Pace-Bend-ish steep jug route with cool low sidepulls and a tricky thin finish for variety. I was super tired beforehand, so the grade is suspect.
