Clay, I think you've exceeded your quota for exclamation points!!!

Great route. If you're some tuff trad guy that thinks sports climbing is for girls, get on this thing, and report back.

A trad climber might not get up this problem but does not have to be tough to fall a few feet onto a bolt . Still for girls.

I seem to recall a pretty reasonable run near the top, maybe 20 feet between bolts, not a just a few. You might want to do a bit of research before disparaging routes...

Due to an overenthusiastic sport loop and the run at the top I took a 60 footer off this thing, about a decade ago. I pulled the rope, left my draws and never returned to the VRG. Go try it, Paul Ross.

Damn Brayne, you left your draws? That must have been some fall...props to you, for real. I am scared just reading the description. I've seen two or three great photos of this climb in magazines over the years and have always wanted to try it, but now I am having second thoughts.
