Comments: Definitely don't miss the top pitch - it adds some adventure and intimidation to compliment the technical first pitch.

Just beware the loose blocks up high, I've had a party above knock off some microwave-sized blocks in a shower of quartz-conglomerate death from above...

Comments: Agree with above - my 6'4" partner couldn't just stretch for the jug so definitely some moves between even for taller folks. Solid 5.11.

Comments: One of the best 10s in the gunks - tricky start and spicy moves before the crux keep the blood going.

Comments: All-points-off dyno finish is definitely exciting, you can stitch up the gear as much as you want before making the move to the top.

Awesome route, great moves.

Comments: Some nice movement, committing moves above gear but the crux protects. Cool moves at the start too.

Comments: such a great route - chimney, hand crack, face, roof, traverse, stemming - all in one 5.6, even if it is a little sandbagged.

Do it in one long pitch as long as your second is okay with the chimney to start for full value.

Comments: There is a way to get up right, which feels pretty solid for the grade.

5.8/9 section below the roof is pretty R, but the crux is super protectable with hand size cams.
