Hey everyone,
I like to do more reading than posting on this site, but this is a route that I don't see mentioned too often, if at all. And I've been working on it for some time. I would really like to work on this route with someone else that is as psyched on it as I am. I train for wide climbing 6 days a week and have all the new toys, 6s, bros, vgs, chockstones, you name it. Valley is about a 4 hour drive for me, Ill make it a priority.

thanks

Aaron,
This climb doesn't involve any special gear -
it's a hand and fist crack through a roof.
Ray Jardine probably didn't use anything larger than a #4 Friend
when he did it in 1978.
You can probably train for it at home -
just build a model of the lip out of wood and train on it,
until you can do the "situp from hell".
There's an old tradition of training on models of climbs,
like when Henry Barber built a model of Foops in his basement.
