Description 

Sandwiched between Roller Girls and Uber Ass, this route is very humbling. Start over relatively easy rock to a decent rest then roll right on through the crux to the chains. Hope you're in good bouldering shape!


Location 

Between Roller Girls and Uber Ass just up the left side of the grey streak.

FA Bill Dockins and Kristen Drumheller, July 1991. Originally given 5.12c! Now considered one of the first 5.13s in Bozeman.

Bill Dockins: fighting grade creep since 1980.

Nothing against Bill, but more likely he couldn't tell the difference. He gave "Songline" 12.b/c and "Inferno" 5.12+ a similar grade, but those two both held their grade. Bill was far ahead of his time in the area; only putting in a couple of attempts before moving on to a new route, send or not.

Can someone add a photo? Would like to see the route, see if it is worth the trip.

Thanks!
