Description:

Amazing friction climbing on the upper face of the thumb. You're in the middle of a sea of smooth granite. There are some healthy runouts on this route. Super classic!

I repeated this 5/8/04, after originally doing it back in the late 90's.....the runouts seemed worse, the topo is NOT to scale, and some 1/4 inch death bolts still remain on this slab. Beware.
