Sure did. He has been projecting that route for several years now.

Fantastic news! Now he won't have that as an excuse not to come check out some other crags.  :)

It's awaiting your ascent, David. He was telling me about it while he was still working on it, but I must admit my mind kind of glazed over after picturing horrendous moves most likely over a line of whacked out copper heads, maybe a funky nut 30 feet below... Actually, I think he claimed the pro wasn't that bad. I would like to see where it actually goes.

The line is to the left of Highway 61.  Watched him work it with Joe Terravecchia a couple weeks ago.  Good on him!  Nice moves.  Jay had some good things to say about a recent visit out to Stairs also.
