Climbing with the USU climbing class. Terminologi...
The crux comes just after mid-way (good rest right before the crux). The real challenge of this route is the continuous nature of the climbing and the length. Make sure to take enough draws. You will need to either belay on top or take two ropes to rap. (A 60 METER IS NOT LONG ENOUGH TO LOWER). This is a great route.
Follow the trail to the base and go right for about 20 feet. Look for the long line of 13 bolts that goes all the way to the top. Lies between Community Effort and Terminalogical.
Draws and two ropes

This climb is great, and long. With a 70m rope both ends were barely on the ground when through the anchors.

I felt like this route was more like a few short cruxes separated by straightforward climbing. Really fun, though. If you don't have two ropes you can use the anchors on Terminalogical Inexactitude as a second rap.

Fun climb, it isnt very hard just long. Just be sure to use a long rope or down climb the last 25 feet. Oh yeah and take alot of draws.. if not you will be beggin for draws at the top.. Enjoy!

13 bolts, as I remember. A 70m gets you back to the ground, or if you really want to be oldschool, you can belay up a second and walkoff to the left. Great climb. FA Jim Sherner, I believe.

Best route on the wall. Not the usual grease-fest you find on other routes here. The climb just goes and goes. Dont be deterred if you only have a 60. Just belay the second from the top and use TX's anchors and do 2 raps. It's a nice warm-up if you are heading up to the cave.

I would say that the crux is getting to the first bolt heading straight up - Not coming in from T/X.
