Comments: Do you think you're some kind of badass for doing a 45' DWS? "Do it without a rope or it doesn't count". Okay tough guy.

Comments: Fantastic route that I will definitely revisit for the send. I can't figure out why the bolt is there considering there is a bomber #1 or #2 cam placement right below it!

Comments: There are a lot of scary, rusted bolts out here. I'd be glad to buy some hardware and assist anyone who is willing to come out and re-bolt some stuff. The Terrorist and Top That Direct are the ones I noticed last weekend.

Comments: I did it with the pocket...the deadpoint to that crimp looked way hard! Great problem, stays fun all the way up through the topout.

edit: Just heard the lower block is off, dang! Solid 8 for sure in that case.
