The reference to p182 of Rossiter's guide is to where it would probably had we done this route in time...
I've found out that there is a Green Room in the Flatirons so now it's a little confusing-rather like having a SONIC YOUTH at every crag. This reference was to surfing and being in the 'tube'.

I found the moves over the initial bulge and up to the good protection to be about 5.8+ vs.-- as in insecure high stepping on licheny holds with a 30 ft. ledge fall. (Sounds like "vs" to me!)
So I, as the Brit's like to say, "wobbled." I traversed up and right to the second bolt on Pt. Break and clipped it with a double-length runner and this gave me no rope drag problems with the rest of the route. Even with this bolt clipped 20 ft. to my right, running out the 8+ was still "s," but made me happy about not having to deal with getting absolutely wrecked if I fell.
From the good pro, follow the path of least resistance leftward below a roof system and around the corner to good footholds at the lip of the reef and the crux. Stepping around the corner and bridging up the well-protected crux provides for some of the best moves in Eldo in a very wild position. I will do this route again!
It might be a good idea to swing by Neptune's and take a look at the topo before setting out on this thing.
