4 out of 5 stars Hard, but really great.

Another longstanding project that I finally sent! This route has a devious and extremely pumpy series of moves through the 4th clip, followed by a nice rest. This is followed by another difficult section over a short bulge capped by another rest. Then, a final fierce sequence guards the chains which can be hard to clip if you're pumped. There are several bolts which need replacing on this route!!

4 out of 5 stars Superb!

Bottom crux and midway crux make this route tricky. Decide whether to go left or right in the middle with the extra bolt. Only with the outstanding belay skills of Mr. Jessen will one ever conquer this route.

4 out of 5 stars perfection

This route is a full value, super techy with a bit of tricky at the top.
Not as ghetto as one would think back at Dishman Rocks
