Anybody have the scoop on this sick line? I heard it may have been locker, but last I heard he'd only just broken through the 5.4c barrier. Amazing in itself!

Waiting for the rad video that's sure to get posted soon.

Pretty sure a bunch of 2a's got onsighted in Red River Gorge this past year. But 2a+? Man.

That 5.4c is a total sandbag!

You know how climbers hate to have their routes down-graded...

New wave Choss or old school choss rating?

The gyms these days don't even teach it, so how can the ratings be accurate on choss anymore?


Mike M, that climb looks rad!

5.4d? C'mon...everyone knows that's just old school 5.3. Will this grade inflation never end?

Thanks Munge. I am hoping to get Crusher on it tomorrow for the second and to confirm the grade. I will try to keep him from busting out the hammer as I hear it is like C3d if you don't want to free climb it.

I agree with Barbarian, everyone knows 5.3d is the top.

Put that d letter behind any number, sit back, and watch havoc reign.
5.4 d......best wire it on top rope before you venture forth.

ask anyone, I am the MASTER of the 5.4d. I tear that sh_it UP. seriuosly. I don't like to spray about my exploits and epics in pushing the 5.4d/5.5a envelope. it's why you see no trip reports from me. I'm so often gripped that I forget to even shoot pictures (ok, I forget the camera but seem to remember the beer and green, sue me). someday, someday.
