I bolted this line from the ground up when I lived in Ridgway back in 2003-2004. I thought this was a fun one.

Luke, if you are out there. It's time to come back and update your lines. Or, if you do not mind, we could. It would be cool to hear from you.

The start felt a little muscley for a 9. The end has a fun and tricky slab move. I enjoyed it.
