Stuck and pushing my first piece way on up there. My belayer was giving me info on how the piece looked because my face was stuck in the crack to see it.

Comments: Super route, but that flake is on its way out. It's super flexy, moving about 1/4" by just pulling against it. Luckily you can stack bomber gear for the run out in the good horizontal. Not all that death defying, but definitely spicy.

Comments: The sit/lay down rest above the 4th or 5th bolt is great. The climbing to that point isn't that difficult, but you can get almost everything back right there.

Comments: Am I the only one who thought this was really hard for 11a? I mean it was just flat out tough.

Comments: Got off route and went up and right when we should have gone left on the second pitch. Wound up doing the sermon, which was pretty strung out to the Oasis, but really good too.

Comments: Tough off the bat with a not obvious start and fun roof climbing.

Comments: I'll respectfully disagree with the criticism of this route. You come to area 51, you better know you're getting some glued on holds. That being said, the climbing is fun, continuous and yes fairly straight forward. Enjoy it for what it is and you'll have a great time on it. Leave your ethics at the door if you're planning on climbing here, or half the meadow for that matter

Comments: The move to the top is definitely tough, but the placemen of the new anchors in relation to the original anchors (6" lower) makes me believe that if you can clip them from there, then do it.

Comments: Great rock, fun movement, good crux. Blows pockets out of the water for sure. If you're there and it's not raining, do this route.
