Comments: It would be X rated without the bolts, as a free climb. It's still not a clipup - the open book is scary no matter how much you aid, or don't aid.

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'm confused. Why did you give it another name?

edit: oh, just saw RC.com calls it "Is This How You Clip?" Never heard it called that before.

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.
