Comments: Of course, I appreciate the history in those things. This one is especially cool, because it's not like Castleton, where it's frustrating to navigate between the graffitti and actual history.

Comments: Fun route Follow Mr. Mottingers beta, it's quite correct. Except for the concern over a new register. I took care of that. H.b. offsets would have kicked butt. I tyroleaned out, but wished I would have opted for the less "holloywood" descent. I was by myself, so I had to go back and forth. I don't see how the A0 bolts on the 1st pitch could rate 5.9. It looked much harder than that, with a wafer flake to boot. I would recommend this route to anyone. -tda
