|A friend of ours from Austria was gurgling about something one day and then in a moment of seriousness says, "do not take the German people lightly, I say" and wagged a finger at us... we were busting up for weeks about the "I say" part at the end.... Must be a translation and grammar thing. Funny to us anyway, thus the route name.|

Managed to hop on this route today. It's really great. Fantastic climbing especially in the upper diagonal. Great route, Russ!
We also top-roped the slab above by continuing past the 'German People' anchor up the last diagonal, then stepping right onto the slab to join up with the 'Slab Hymen' anchors. It's grainy, but amazing. Super-thin face moves between xenolith knobs with big high-steps/mantels. It's gotta be hard .11 slab, maybe harder.
