This route is just to the right of Crash and Burn. It was partially equiped by Jack Marshall, but completed by another. Hence the name. Begin on the line of bolts that are on the right edge of a lighter mound of rock. This is the last line in the main cave on the right. Surmount the mound, crank off the mono, and then continue to blast your forearms to the top. This route is very pumpy if you don't find the right beta. Originally given 12c, consensus seems to be 12b. A prominent jug recently (1/14/07) broke off, perhaps increasing the rating, but it's difficult to say. More people need to climb it and weigh in! Seems that another jug broke of recently (3/14/2009) in the lower section, it's remains can still be found at the base of the climb. It might also be the one that came down earlier, but then it would be lying there for 2 years.

4 out of 5 stars Major breakage

A crucial jug near the start (the one just above the mono) crumbled to the floor on my third go. Luckily nobody was hurt in the process, but I couldn't figure out a way to get through this section after the breakage occurred. It's probably still climbable, but it got harder for sure.

3 out of 5 stars hard

For me it was as hard as crash and burn 5.12d. Which hold broke? Crazy mono pulling.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Fun times on huge holds. The 4th bolt has been moved (as evidenced by the hole from the old bolt) and seems hard to clip compared to what the old location must have been. Probably doesn't matter much once the draws are up.
