Micky J ?Jul, 2008 - the original route climbed up left and then back right to the belay which you could not clip and was hard and scary to grab since we could not clip the bolt below either ! A few new holds and a different finish have now been unearthed . Its good its 7c+ but it aint Dead Calm !!!
