Comments: I actually thought it was a fun route. I also did the 5.7 chimney start. The third pitch is a blast-probably the best on the route.

Beats hanging twenty off the chains at the top of P4 of Birdland. Just sayin'

Comments: Just did this route and thought it was great. Both P1 and P2 cruxes were thoughtful and challenging. P2's airy traverse is fun - I am tall, so I got the foot hold without an intermediate step at the beginning...lucky me.

Comments: I found the first 20 feet aren't great for protection and I had to make a bit of a committing move before I found a good .75 BD camalot placement which gave me all the confidence to continue. I did come down once, just to pull my head together and then was able to finish the route.

Comments: I have to agree with Taino...I thought the first pitch was run out and the grade a little underrated-although I could have been off route too because the way was not abundantly clear.

Comments: I'd be careful of that fixed gear at the top of P1. At top out of Son of Bitchy Virgin it's easy enough to traverse right (if facing the cliff) and rappel from the other tree. This takes you straight down to the gully and tree with slings that the (other) Dana is talking about.

Comments: I love this climb. Trending right on P2 rather than going straight up offers a nice alternative and gets you to the rappel tree without down climbing. Great pro at all 3 bulges.

Comments: It was a great route and P2's roof had rests along the way.

Comments: An absolutely beautiful, fun and excellent moderate. Be prepared for the descent...it's long and a little grungy but well worth it.
