Jug fest. Newly added fixed draws make this a more enjoyable climb (i.e. now you don;t have to follow it to clean your gear!). Fun steep jugs. Nearly walk to the lake, on the right you will see a cave about 12 to 15 feet off the ground inhabited by many pigeons and lots of moss, climb up to cave and Tobacco Road starts on your right. Follow Green Fixed Draws. Bring your own draw(s) for the shuts.

5 out of 5 stars Great jug haul

I wouldn't say this was 12b except that it restores my position as the worlds worst redpointer.

4 out of 5 stars alzheimer's flash.

You would think that this route would suck. there's that annoying, un-aesthetic gravel band in the Colesseum, and this route traverses through it for like five bolts. But it still has really good climbing. Crisp edges at the top are cool, too.

5 out of 5 stars Thank god for fixed draws...

Soft for the grade (5.12b), but I bet I wouldn't have just typed that if the draws weren't pre-hung.
Super fun pulling on big holds with a bouldery crux moving to the face. Easy, creepy runout on pancake-like holds to the anchors.
