This route features really solid rock the entire way. Managing one's way over the last roof section is definitely pumpy. Also, towards the top, this route one of the few slopers at the homestead.

Great route! Very solid rock. Sloper at the top! The movement on this route was amazing! John sure knew what he was doing thank sir!

I was wondering how this route is as I have been on the routes to either side but didn't see any chalk on it. Usually if it is good it has a lot of chalk. Guessing it was a little dusty when you first got on it.

Fun climb but I am not sure where the "sloper" is. Maybe I was on as I didn't feel like any of the holds were bad. Loved the big moves.
