3 out of 5 stars 8th time's a charm

great climb. doesn't look like it but the beginning is the easy part. the top gets a bit warmer. don't recall the bolts in 2009. guess the panties sat well yesterday...didn't get bunched up.

3 out of 5 stars Fun...

...but a few loose holds on the upper part. Finished on the newish pitch mentioned by the previous poster. This makes for a nice two pitch climb.

4 out of 5 stars I give it more credit then it gets...

a fun well bolted line that can now be continued into Justin Days route Revive 5.9+ past the tree belay for the second pitch. both lines together make for great mixed climbing (5 bolts) and some height on the So-Po. recommended

Second Second ascent by: up_for_a_good_time on 2009-09-10 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Seven tries....on a #5 nut. No-go.

Led to the last bolt....was too pumped and couldn't finish. Panties were too tight.
