Comments: I liked having three C4 #4's on this one. Easier to bump in the flare, and then again they fit well at the top (unlike what the description says above, I definitely wanted a #4 at the top, not a #3?). I took a bunch of #3's and maybe only placed 2 of them, but I do love that size. The lie-back at the start was hard for me - .5's then slowly gets bigger. Overall an amazing and varied climb, worth doing!!! I thought it was a bit harder than King Cat, but that's just me.

Comments: For the start just place a piece and commit to the lie-back for a move, until you get that first jam. It's way better than it looks! I stepped right where it made sense, and the finger crack above is really nice with great feet. A very atypical IC climb, but well worth it! I'd say 10- is accurate.

Comments: Agree with Brandon above - lots of C4 #4 placements to be had. For me (a #1 hands gal), this was mostly fists/arm bars, but the feet are perfect the whole way and that roof at the top is amazing!!!

Comments: Like WOAH. Don't be intimidated and get on this thing! I liked having a #1 before the traverse, along with a #1 for after the traverse. Two words for the traverse: thumb catch. The #3 sections are lovely, and that pod at the start is way better than it looks! Save a #2 for the end. SO GOOD!

Comments: I found that two #3 friends were money for what was the crux section of the overhang for me. I have small hands (can jam down to .75's) but I LOVE this route - absolutely worth leading if you're a thin hands person but love #3's like I do!

Comments: I can't believe this doesn't get more stars...In my opinion this is one of the best 5.9's in the park (better than Touch and Go and Pope's Crack, if you ask me!). Tips, to fingers, to off-fingers, thin hands, hands, fists, off-width. Perfect smooth granite splitter!!
