Comments: I thought the steep face climbing on the second pitch (if you break it down into 4 and don't link) was the hardest bit of the day. The first pitch is great fun with good gear. The 3rd/4th have some steep parts I found burly, but were also really fun and there were new bolts and gear when needed. We did this on a beautiful Sunday where the lines at Smith would have been out of control, and had Steins pillar and its great summit all to ourselves. Overall really enjoyable - DO IT!

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!
