For not being so steep this route has a surprising amount of pump to it! Good climbing on good holds- save some juice for the top.

This route is now equipped with links and mussy hooks courtesy of the ASCA. Please leave these in place!

^^^^^^My six masters' degrees in engineering tell me that 2 drops of loctite save these kinds of posts and the eventual removal of the hardware that's paid for by kind donations.

That's just the benefit of spending 80 years in engineering school.

Or, having three brain cells, total. Stapled together. With duct tape backup.
