Scramble up the boulders to the right of the main block and pre-clip the first bolt from there. This route is short and very intense - significantly harder than Whiskey a go go (ultra classic...), but shorter. Grading is difficult due to the length, yet the crux (moving from the second to third bolt) is both sequence specific and powerful. Flex your huge muscles really hard and follow the arrette to chains. Then go have a beer.


This route is the right hand side of the block that follows the obvious angled arrette. On the right side of the upper arrette is an aesthetic finger crack. Lower off of the chains or untie and walk off the back side.


All bolts.

If you've already done Whiskey or are a strong boulderer (but stay away from endurance routes), let me encourage you to get on this climb. It's somewhere between a boulder problem and a proper route, but it's hard, aesthetic and fun nonetheless. The grade is a suggestion at this point and is based on Whiskey as a .13a.

This is a really cool feature. Vinny and I were able to figure out most of the moves, but the two move crux sequence is HARD! After that its fun and bouldery to the top. Stoked on this new project, thanks Keith.

Hell yeah! I met up with Steve Tucker on Sunday and we're both eyeing two more lines. He's going to bolt a cool (big!) roof, and I'm bolting a giant fin this week. Both are tall, gorgeous lines and it's surprising they haven't been climbed yet.

So, new digs at Necedah this summer.

Awesome line Keith! super fun classic, well worth the time on it. In a way its a wee bit of a one move wonder, but it didnt take away from its aesthetic at all.

Travis - I'm stoked that you got it! It's certainly one hard move, but I was excited to find something new to climb. Keep crushing.
