Comments: An excellent route, sustained the for the duration, although there are 3 good holds - two about 12 feet off the bottom, the first is part of a big block that is supported by some obvious green glue (necessary, and the block is natural). The second is just one move away from the first. The third decent hold is up high, right where you would place your gear on lead.

Comments: Just a few clarifications to the route description and Charles comment. First, the "30ft. of runout" past the crux on P2 is not runout at all. Maybe Andy meant that it was easy 5.4 or so, but definitely not runout.

You can rap from the eyebolt on the Red Ledge with two 50m ropes, but you must downclimb (easy 5th class) about 10ft from a big ledge. Not sketchy at all.
