4 out of 5 stars Finally!

Wow...can't believe I finally sent this route. My buddies and I have been trying it for the past two+ climbing seasons. It's a great route, well protected and really fun moves. Now I have to figure out what comes next.

5 out of 5 stars Culture Shocked

I first tried this route at the end of september in '06 and rested quite a bit past the first crux. After that this route has been on my mind ever since and I jumped at the chance to get back on it when I made my first trip of the year to Exit 38. The wall was pretty wet but I had to give it a shot and after my first try and a 15 minute rest I got phsyched and pushed to the top for the redpoint. This is one of the best routes on this wall, in my opinion, with great crux moves on positive crimpers, and awesome jug hauling up an intimidating, overhanging wall of high quality rock.

After several seasons in Squamish, this route was a real slap in the face. I remember getting pumped out of my mind on the thing. A local strolls up and tells me how easy it is, maybe even easy for the grade; he thinks an appropriate grade would be 11+. I'm thinking what a freaking dip this guy is. Life is wonderful, however, because a year later I run into the same guy in Squamish working on Black Water (12a) on the Pet Wall. The guy is getting his little fanny SPANKED. I rope up, sail through the climb, come down, and can you guess what I told him...

Still, this was only one of a handful of climbs I did in this area. I was really impressed with the rock, and the routes were all fantastic.
