Comments: This route packs a lot of variety for a slab. Maybe not more fun than Porkfist but certainly more engaging.

Comments: I agree w/ Aeon. The route has cleaned up quite a bit and is actually very fun. This route legitimately goes straight up the "face" of the arete until the very top.
A little dusty from not having much traffic but totally worth the effort.

Comments: TFB - Thanks for taking the time to post up a full disclosure on the history of the route.
Well played on giving CW the option to take it up a notch, I hope he's psyched enough to do so.

My junkshow comment was not meant to demean your effort but as a reference to the deteriorating condition of the route, since it has sat neglected for so many years.

Comments: My 3 stars are contingent on 1) linking into the Love Route from Better Than Love and 2) that the last pitch of the route is dry.

Comments: Truly amazing, this thread in the route description is the most attention this thing has seen in the last 2 decades.

I'll let Weidner's resume and reputation speak for themselves.
Thanks, Chris, for taking the effort to turn this ignored, junkshow into a nice addition to the Canyon.

Comments: Pleasantly surprised by this one, and the rock was better/cleaner than it looked from the ground.

Comments: Super cool pic. The view straight down the west face from that point at the end of the traverse is... just one of those things you have to experience.

Comments: As of the date listed on this post, both bolt hangers and chains are back in place at the anchors.

Comments: Agree that the top has some junky rock. It seemed contrived NOT to head right into the obvious flake system, there's great holds that take you directly into it.
Surprisingly the rock through the mini-overlap before the final dihedral is quite solid.

Comments: You may want to consider either sticking the 1st bolt or anchoring your belayer as a leader fall would take both parties for at least a 30 footer off the side of the cliff into the talus at the base.

Comments: The route has cleaned up nicely. The only disturbingly loose rocks were a couple of large blocks in the roof starting the 3rd pitch.

Comments: Maybe the L hand start is better. But I thought that climbing up the line to the right side of the bolts was more than a little sketchy. Not so much that there's loose rock, more like there's huge sections where everything is simply decomposing.

So long story short, it's not really cleaned up. There's even loose flakes/holds from the last ledge to the chains.
Just a heads up.

Comments: Not sure, but if the edge on the right is off then I'd also say that underclinging the flake is also off.

Comments: No one had mentioned it. But there is a 2 bolt anchor w/ chains at the top of this route. At least as of March 2012.
