Comments: Outside of two holds reinforced with glue, the route is all natural.....EXCEPT for the fact that the route ISN'T all natural. So much for ethics. Great points, Marcy.

Comments: In the event of a shark attack conventional wisdom is to stick your fingers into the shark's eye. Near the top of this problem there is an impressive symmetrical finger pocket that begs to be utilized in a moment of panic.

Comments: Wow, Tony, you sure nailed the beta on "Doggie Style." A bit stiff for the grade, steep, sharp, and thin.

Comments: Nice photo, Austin. Great looking rock. It appears there are still a few loose flakes and stones laying about on the ledges. In such a setting and in 22 pitches there will be those. Be careful out there.

Comments: Wow. Nice detailed overview of the route, Tristan. I forget the details of the FA, but I tip my hat to you regarding your vision and the perseverance required to establish this line, and to link all those pitches and features together.

Comments: Tristan....I wish I could say that I've never done something like that, but we all do occasionally. I hope that you get your #3 BD cam back.

Comments: The rock that crack splits is about fifteen feet high and the crack contains some loose blocks, but is probably 5.7 in difficulty. Careful at the top.
