Comments: Equally as hard as Vermin.


Just kidding I haven't climbed Vermin in a long time. This route has really good movement though!!

Comments: You can get one solid piece after the first bolt before manteling on to the ledge and then another piece in a pocket, but I'm not sure how solid the rock is for that pocket. Either way, I'm cool with where the bolts are. The boulder start is really fun and the climbing up top is nice.

Comments: Super chossy feet but it's still a fun route when everything else on Red Wall is taken. I do remember thinking the route would take gear when climbing it, so reading these comments about Ask Mr. Science makes sense. Thanks for updating the anchors Wade, last time I was on this the anchor bolts were looking a little uninspiring.

Comments: The first time I went out to climb at Shortoff, I saw this line and thought "man I need to climb that". We did the climb in two mega-pitches, but the drag is a son of a bitch once you pull around the final bulge. I brought doubles of the small stuff but aside from one small nut, everything I placed was .5 and up.

Comments: This is one of those routes I wish I could rate 5 stars. It makes me want to go through my list of rated routes and subtract one star from almost all of them.

Comments: This route is pretty fun! Three boulder problems that get progressively harder but separated by good rests. I wasn't able to link it last time but it feels possible!

Comments: Can someone post the beta for rapping in (or PM it to me)? Is it possible with one 70m rope? Thank you!

Comments: The rock on this route is absolutely beautiful. The route gets progressively harder as you move up. I only gave this thing one burn to work out the beta, it will go down when the water level is down this fall.

Does this count as my first aid climb?

Comments: Depends on which holds you started on, but it's probably black slab right. mountainproject.com/v/black-sl...

Comments: After the sidepull, is the next hold way up and left? Do your feet cut or can you make them stay when you stick it?
