Comments: I only climbed the first (5.11R) pitch and it was very good. The climbing requires you to pull solid slab moves pretty far out from your bolts, better be solid..

Comments: An easy and well protected route, only about 30 feet of "real" climbing but still good.

Comments: The moves on this are all there but the gear leaves something to be desired. If you like tinkering you way up a route with small nuts and thin cams than this is a good lead otherwise TR it.

Comments: A fun route but I wouldn't call it the "best in Tahoe area", It's not a route I'd climb again..Been there done that.

Comments: This route was always on my list of routes to do and I finally did it and it was kinda disappointing. The first pitch is basically jumbled crap and the second pitch was cool but it certainly looks better in pictures than it actually climbs. This would be a great route for a new 5.10a leader; plenty of stances, bomber gear, and decent exposer. I easily rapped with a 70m.

Comments: An amazing route! Really fun chimney on the first pitch leads to a short but sweet fisty second pitch. If you bring 2 #3's and 2 #4's you'll feel really safe and secure.

Comments: A decent route which is slightly runout in the easy sections(5.6) with good pro at all the cruxes. As for the gear goes a single to #2 Camalot and a set of nuts is about all you need, definitely leave the #3 & #4 that people recommend on the ground.

P.S Do not replace the loose block with a bolt..WTF are you thinking.
