Probably my favorite route at the Edge.

Tom Stryker with friends Moffat and Hamel first did this as a ground up trad lead - probably in the early 1980s. That surely would change the letter at the end of the grade! My memory's a little foggy about who bolted this one after these years, but I'm pretty sure they ran it by Tom before drilling.

Nobody asked me about bolting it.
