Incredible route that I'm kicking myself for not bolting first. Oh well. This route climbs straight up the center of the wall, with a hard start, sustained mid-section and a tricky exiting sequence. This route stays on you with exhilarating movement and is an excellent tick for the grade.


8 bolts, open cold shuts anchor

Probably one of the best routes for the grade in Spearfish Canyon. It throws a little bit of everything at you. You'd better be on your toes to get this one. It has tossed everyone who has been on it. Be prepared for a little work. Fun and super classic, a must do!

Does this still have glue on the first crimper over the edge? It seems like a shame if it is. The rest of the route is stellar movement w/out anything being manufactured or held together. It sounds like it's getting a lot of traffic, that's good to hear.
