Dillon getting it dialed for the redpoint.

Description 

Originally envisioned by Tony Lusk and drilled on aid I think. Eventually others did a ton of work to clean and solidify the route and did the first redpoint. This thing is super steep on the bottom 20 feet then it is "not so steep" but the moves through here might thwart you.


Location 

Down the hill about two thirds of the way to the toe of the rock. It is the steepest start you will find. It starts just right of the Delt Melt crack/flake which leads to a dihedral.

Great route. Really don't understand the bomb rating given by the one person.

Super fun, some sharp bits, but in your face from the first hold.

Super fun! almost got the onsight. Botched the crux move beta. Here is how I did it.

I can understand the bomb rating, based on some people's stance regarding glued holds. Personally thought the moves were great while aiding up it!
