This route goes right up the center of one of the coolest looking walls at the Pond Area. No move harder than V4, yet absolutely no rest.

This route definitely has some of the best and most consistent movement on any QC route. It has cleaned up nicely over the years. It would definitely deserve 4 stars if it weren't for the drilled pockets. Of course, if it weren't for those pockets, it probably wouldn't deserve four stars. Whould it even be possible? I guess we will never know.

All the ticks that were added this week made this route seem a lot easier! Especially the two foot long one showing the way to the obvious clipping hold below the second to last bolt! NOT! Super lame! Please clean your ticks or better yet just stay inside and follow the tape.

Pretty fun, with consistent difficulty all the way up. It's a shame it has been comfortized and drilled out though.

And thanks to the person who equipped this with nice shiny new chain draws!

FA was Craig Keaty circa 1994? He also did many of the lines around the Pond including Pocket Puzzle, Out on Parole, Emerald City, and Death Row. And he gave me some his tights back in the day. He was actually my climbing mentor I belayed him many a time on DD before he sent. It was way over my head back then. I knew that he had glued/reinforced it but he never mentioned the drilling. I haven't spoke to him in ages, but I would be curious to see what he has to say about it.
