The second pitch of this route may be one of GJ's best finger cracks. It's debatable. Definitely a must do for the seasoned Creek-fiend who wants less crowds and more varnish...I remember thinking this route is what Fingers in a Lightsocket must have felt like 20 years ago!
There might be a few more new lines waiting on this wall, but for the most part the Rough Wall leaves first ascentionists disappointed. If you climb this route, check out the "Johnny Ringo Project": it starts in the same spot as Maximum Impact but moves out left to a crucial orange TCU placement and then into the danger zone where I tried to drill a bolt on lead- not so smart. It'll go....
