Comments: I found this easier than "Eat Yourself a Pie" which I climbed later in the day. I did the entire climb as a lieback and cruised up it. The crux is a series of 9 moves especially if you can't jam or lieback very well.

Comments: The right hand hanger at the top of this route is a touch loose. I had to twist it back around so the rap ring hung properly. The bolt seems good though.

Comments: I'd agree it is a one move wonder. The first move off the deck is the closest to 5.8. The rest of the route has bomber holds the whole way.

Comments: If this is the climb on the backside of Roadside rock then the anchors up top are super sketch. Both anchors appear to be concrete bolts with double washers and some chain. The anchor climbers left is so loose I pushed it back in with my hand before lowering. The rest of the hardware looks to be pretty well set.

Comments: The direct start variation is pretty burly and run out but I'm not sure I'd rate it at full 5.8. Once up into the seam its pretty straight forward to regain the ledge where the standard traverse joins. This isn't a cruiser by any stretch. The holds are large and abundant, its just that they are so damn awkward and some of the sequences aren't straight forward in my opinion.

Comments: This was my first true crack climb and I am now a crack addict. The first couple of jams were awkward for me, but once I got the hang of the jamming it was like swimming up the crack. The guide I was climbing with commented that I just floated right up the route.

Comments: Fun climb, might have been easier if I knew how to properly hand jamb. A couple of awkward spots that require some creative movement. Hauling my camera up on a shoulder sling probably didn't help either.

Comments: The beta about walking and jamming up the crack didn't make this route seem bad at all. I neglected to rack everything to the left and it made right foot moves awkward, but a good climb still. I also used the large offwidth at the top to chimney up the final vertical which may have made it easier also.
