Comments: Fun climb. The first move is very tough, and I'd say more of a 5.9+. The bolt it right there though, so fall all you want. The fun stuff is at the top.

Comments: Crux is at the top. It's 5.9 otherwise. Easy to TR, and with a little extension you avoid the crux. In fact, it's not recommended to TR it without extension as you could swing off to the left and get injured.

Comments: Fun route and a nice face climb. I think it's more like 5.9 though. The crux is a mantle move to a crack about 10 feet above the roof, which can easily be bypassed by going left to the chimney and then traversing back out. Easy face climb afterwards.

Taking the crack to the right at the start is a tougher variation. Probably 5.10c to get over the headwall. Traverse left at the second overhang to get back on route.

The route is often used by climbing schools in combination with nutcracker ... more >>

Comments: No way this is 5.2. 5.5 easily.

A variation is the "Birthing Canal". Go to the back of the cave at the top chimney and climb straight up. Don't try this if you aren't skinny.
