Description:

THE trad testpiece at The Frenchman's Coulee. This famous climb has recently had those stupid bolts chopped. Tight figer locks and difficult technical stemming demand exceptional skills. A lead of this route puts you in an elite class.

4 out of 5 stars excellent

TR'd this after we led George and Martha. Fell a few times, especially near the top. Balancy and pumpy but with good rests throughout. Would love to have the guts to lead this someday.
