Comments: Can someone confirm the big drill hole left of initial 1st crack is on? Didn't try the crack without it.

Comments: This one scared me a little bit. Above a 13' runout when at roof before bolt clipped. I found myself saying I hate slabs two bolts above the roof at a tenuous stance. Just mental though, decent climbing.

Comments: 5.9+ is a little too sandbagged by a number grade or two. :)

Comments: Great thoughtful moves, but much easier than 12d. Good TR or stick clip the first bolt as it is quite dangerous to clip. Slightly run out after the first bolt but eases substantially to the second bolt.

Comments: Nice variety for Logtown. This route has powerful, aesthetic moves on close to vertical good rock similar to Frodo but a little harder. Boulder up 20' to the first bolt. Crank a couple hard fun moves past the second bolt to one of the best drill hole holds in the quarry. Enjoy.

Comments: Clipping the bolts is kind of committing/balancy on your first couple go's, I have seen people stick clip both bolts on the climb.

Comments: This climb might feel a little hard for the grade if your hand size is big. Well protected.
