:D For those who don't know. The very first route at the whiskey jack wall when you face it. Its red flagged.

If you get it remove the red tag please and let me know the grade.

Its called "Enjoy your sandwich!"

First one there gets the ascent. I don't care who.

PS It is all bolted and clean but it does need chains for the top.

Damm Marc,

I was hoping you would give me one more week. I think I got it figured out.

Oh well, maybe if it's sunny this weekend.

nah, i was about to say the same thing myself. it sucks when whenever you say something on this forum somebody has something stupid to say in response and 'why don't you just chip it then' definitely qualifies...

well, actually, I wouldn't be so quick to call that quote stupid. First off, maybe it was a joke. Second, even if it wasn't, there are plenty of routes in chek which were chipped down to the first ascentionist's paltry level. Don't make me name names. Just because you don't know, don't assume it ain't so.

I have never chipped a route down to my level. I just give the first ascent away. I couldn't care less about the ascent. I enjoy putting the routes up.

Besides, I would need a jack hammer to get this route to my level. :cry:

The route has been sent:

Enjoy your sandwich 5.12b
5 bolts (currently has a bail biner on one of the anchors. I will add chains ASAP. 13 meters long. very fun, great sequence.
FA: Gary Foster
Prep: Marc Fournier

The route may go at 5.12a, not sure but my best guess would be 12b at this point.

Nice fun route. If I may humbly suggest a name change however, I would say "short sharp shock". There are lots of other pink floyd names out there, so why not another one, at least this one is pretty representative of how you will feel when you fall at the 3rd bolt. Not that i did or anything... hehe...
This thing would be hard to onsight, the sequence at the top is tough to read. Oh, and I agree with gary's guess of 12b. Seems fair for the area.
