Pumpy and powerful, with a distinct crux near the end. Contains nice pockets, but also some very slippery, polished edges.

It would be nice if whoever stole my top draws on this would give them back, I left three on the bolts after deep end breaks off. the disappeared about a week ago and I only had them up for maybe 2 before.

I think the word you were looking for wasn't "stole", but "cleaned". As you apparently abandoned them for 3 weeks, they were no longer yours.

Very fun route, with a bouldery finish. I was on this tonight, and I noticed the missing draws on the uppers section. 3 weeks definitely doesn't constitute abandonment for draws. I've worked projects much longer than that, and it's been obvious someone left the draws on purpose to work the route. In fact, I was glad they were up. Whoever took them, give the dude his draws back.

I enjoyed this route. Stays with you, and the fun comes right before the anchors.
