much needed rest before the final moves

Description 

Sustained, long, and progressively more powerful pulls on thin holds quickly lead into a burly undercling, and finally a crux stab at a good pocket. All this made more exciting as the crux throw is made with the bolt below your feet...(dont worry its a good fall:). Rest up in the cave at the top, as there is still a slopey V2 move to get the anchors clipped.

6 Bolts

I think FA honors go to George Forge III.

This route has been cleaned up a lot now, and is actually very straight forward, not much in the way of difficult sequencing. There are good thin sustained crimps the whole way. You need to move fast to have enough power left to do the crux moves at the top.

Route leads very well, easy clipping stances. A little run out at the last bolt , but is unavoidable due to the nature of the crux moves.

Last night I witnessed the coveted 4th ascent of this route. A proud effort by Roberto, he took the "big fall" 3 times yesterday, and finally sent right at dusk. He just crushed it!

Nice work Remo! Truly one of the top-10 routes in Minnesota/Wisconsin.
The highly anticipated, and noteworthy 5th male ascent?

Very good route, this thing has a tough crux! Hard for those with fat fingers.

The quality of this route has gone up in recent years with it seeing a bit more traffic. The holds are very clean and texture still good. Although my first .13, I think this route is definitely fun and worth your time. Props to Cole for putting it down with me tonight! Maybe a first for the route... 2 redpoints in one day???
