A hard move right off the ground leads to several bolts of consistent crimping. After a decent rest move in to the single hardest move on the route, a big move to a small and slopey three finger crimp, and and another, smaller throw to a ok jug. From this rest its all big moves on big holds to the top.


one to the right of Nate Dog.


bolts, all fixed draws

Did this route come from a funky ball of teets from outer space?

This route feels really hard for 13c, I'm guessing the consensus will probably settle in at 13d or 14a, once it sees repeat ascents. Nice job Kinchen!

Yeah Mike, I'm sure your right on the grade. Ed had it at solid .13d after he did it. Awesome to see you're down there again and adding some more information to the database
