Josie, early run on Eye.

Description 

Starts at 2 bolts very close together and trends to the right up to the bulls-eye shaped "Eye" feature. Then back left to chaindraw and anchor. Lots of good movement, very sustained.

Elegant edging leads to a high crux and a powerful finish. Definitely a Tucson classic for the grade - as good as Tsunami or Sentenced (if you can overlook the glue...).

The holds on this route are quite ... snappy. Had a series of ever-changing beta due to hold loss.

Hah! It's more that your ten-foot wingspan allowed you to skip the small snappy holds that I had to use.

Nice going Ryan. Wondered where all the chalk on Yard Boss came from when I was there last week. Didn't think anyone ever got on that thing.

Thanks Eric. If Dominic and Shefus hadn't made it look so fun I'm not sure I'd have gotten on it. I'm glad I did, a tad small and sharp in spots but very fun.
