Great job finishing up this route. Talk about an obvious line, front and center on the Grotto Wall. Chip Lee aided part of this route,in '83, his high point was the old button head bolt. I hung a top rope over it in '87...John Stieger and I both free climbed up to the jug on the arete. We lost interest, though, because the rest of the route above, looked like 5.13 on vertical kitty litter. When I heard you finished it at only 12b I was surprised but now I see from the video you ended the route with an anchor at the top of the corner where the hold end. That never occured to us but looks like the smart choice.

Dyno from crimps and a sidepull to the jug on the arete! So sick!
