Guess I had to climb this eventually
Took longer than I'd like to mention, but finally got this one clean! Great route up an impeccable line.
Started projecting last two sessions of 2017's season. Hopped on it and sent it first session first burn today!
Fully expected to hate this route, but it's really no worse than Warthog.
A surprise send today on my last go! Fun bouldery moves at the start, with a very technical, exciting finish.

Suprizing that it went on the first go
Fun bouldery moves followed by much less fun awkward traverse. Many head jams.
Last 5.12 in the amphitheater. Tried it once a few years ago.
2nd go. Liked this route despite lack of enthusiasm around it. I need a rest day.
1st go. Tried it once a few years ago.
Really bouldery first 3 bolts. Stick Clip is suggested. Lots of rests near the top with some awkward moves.
very cool route! lots of no hand rests
absolutely loved it - lots of people hate it.
Fun climb, my favourite part is the traverse with nothing but treetops below your feet

Clipping that damn anchor...
Love this climb. For me, this is the test-piece climb to see if I've been training enough
Amazing position with both powerful and delicate moves
Pleasantly surprised by this route. Stick clipping the second draw is a good idea. Clipping the anchor is the crux.
