Description 

This route is second from the right of the true Gridwall routes, and one route left of "Beeline" (12a). Starts with some cool pocket stabs and crossover moves on decent stone, then heads straight up the wall on standard AF choss, with less than standard Gridwall monotony. The bolts are more spaced than most AF routes, so get psyched...and don't even look at the old, bent SMC hangers and the rust and corrosion surrounding each bolt head.

Rated 12c/d in the book, at most climbing areas this route would be 12b...but who really cares, its a good time and character building for American Fork.


Protection 

9 bolts.

The old bolts have been replaced. I don't know when, but they were looking good this weekend. I wish they would have added one for the final crux section, which is pretty spicy way out there for the onsight climber! The rating does seem a little soft, but that may be because of a few quality rest spots along the way.
