Description:

Superb route on the face between Ye Gods and Candy Corner. It's possible to back up the fixed pin with a nut on a long sling up and left but it still might be bad if the fixed pin blows.

4 out of 5 stars stellar route, but kinda jammed in there

Five stars if only it were not a cramped eliminate. The movement and sustained nature is definitely some of the best around. Gear is better than I thought. The pin looks a little sketchy, but it is good. You can back it up with a pretty good wire, too. Run it out for 10-15 feet above that, but know your fall is clean. Pumpy route with very few true rest positions and a kick-in-the-nuts pump crux at the top. Blew my clean ascent when my foot popped below the technical crux. Damn.

Heady Onsight. Damn topropers chalk led me into the bail out option into Ye Gods, so i had to back out, down climb 8 feet or so (cruxy as hell) and move into the correct sequence. Gear isn't too bad. 15 feet run out at most
