Although I haven't sent any of the lines on this section of the wall, this is another great addition to the right side of this crag. It's the direct line up the wall with the most consistent difficulty and the best rock (sans glued holds on the upper crux). Interstellar is great, but it changes difficulty by almost a full number grade at the top and rather abruptly. Mission is also good, but on the upper boulder, the rock is somewhat crumbly, and there's an outside chance the key hold for the upper boulder will someday go.
All three are great lines, but this has a nice flow to it as well and is a worthy objective. Now if I could only climb it....

|In my view, this is a substantial improvement on Interstellar Overdrive. I don't know what it is about Clear Creek, but the linkups are often better than the "straight up" lines! Anyway, an outstanding route, thanks for the vision and hardware, Jay!|
