Comments: this thing is harder than it looks from the ground. kinda sequencey. the gear is good, but hard to see and place well while on route. very fun though.

Comments: The gear is good, and straightforward (not big stoppers) but if your belayer isn't paying attention you could still hit the ledge. I thought this route all came down to one move, but it is a hard move!

Comments: i can't believe the girl in the photo put a cam behind that flake and it is still there! the climbing is not hard, but the protection in the roofs is sketchy, those flakes definitely move and the pitons that are in place to protect them are bad, at best. i backed up the first pitch rappel tree with a tricam on 5/20/14 because that tree is certainly half alive.

Comments: as of 6/15/13 there are no usable bashies in place after the bolt in the seam on pitch two. The dead heads left are no good for hooking, i almost hooked micro features up to the belay before a small crystal i was hooking exploded and sent me for a big one. felt really hard the way i found it, but with usable bashies in place i would call pitch two freaky C3-.

Comments: I don't usually comment on routes, but I thought the other comments were a little sandbagged. I thought this climb was a one move gunks 5.11 and that the one move was really hard, like solid 5.11 hard and being tall doesn't help much. I am 6'1 and have climbed many 5.11's and 12's in the Gunks. Take that for whatever it's worth.

Comments: Even with the tiny nut holding, if you blow the crux you could slam your heels into the ledge that you start the crux sequence from. I've seen it happen a few times and it's not a nice fall.

Comments: there is an alternate start to this route which goes at 5.11+. start three feet right of the original start where there are two very small crimpers on the face above the wide crack. move strait up the face to under the roof, then move left and join original route.
