Awesome route! Spoiled for choice with the flowstone holds, but surprising overhangy.

I think flowstone is going to become my Portland nemesis. Felt tough for a 5. Didn't really have the strength left in the arms to commit to this route properly.

Horrible if wet....
homing-penguin - TR RP - 16/Jul/12

Dripping wet near the top, muddy in the breaks - might be nice in decent condition felt nails with the seepage.

Still failed. Either I'm missing something or the placement of the third bolt reveals an evil sense of humour.
