Comments: Decent climbing but some loose friable rock on these still. I broke a small hold off Thumbs Up and the obvious clipping hold below the crux bolt flexes enough so that it's probably not going to last much longer.

Comments: I led this a couple of years ago on a cool day and thought it was really soft for 10d. Led it again yesterday on a hot and sunny day and thought 10d was reasonable.

Comments: That's actually the first bolt on Captain Crunch not Rice Krispies.

Comments: A key hold at the crux broke off a little while ago. I have not been up it since then but a friend of mine has and thinks it's probably a 5.11 move now.

Comments: Awesome climb in an a beautiful setting. The description is mistaken though. The crux was not the 5.7 slab. It was surviving the hordes of bloodthirsty mosquitoes.

Comments: There was a minor accident on this route recently. Because of the traverse the force on the belayer after the leader has clipped the bolt will be horizontal if the leader falls. The belayer was not properly anchored and was pulled into the rock face and suffered a cut on the head. Fortunately they did not drop the climber and while the cut bled profusely the injury did not seem especially severe otherwise. It's probably a good idea to use your own anchor instead of the rap station which is meant... more >>

Comments: I did the 10c variation on the first pitch. Really enjoyed it but I like friction climbing. The second pitch was a bit scary as I did not have enough of the right sized gear and had to run it out quite a bit.

Comments: Climbed this on TR this weekend. Crux is fun but it's quite runout above that. No worthwhile gear after that first bolt and I didn't see the old anchor bolt mentioned in the description. Maybe a 70 foot runout to the new anchors up top.

Comments: Easier for taller climbers but unless something has broken off since the route was put up it's sandbagged at 5.8.

Comments: I'm not exactly sure how the route finishes. It seemed like there were multiple ways you could climb the top part. All of them looked pretty easy but some a bit more runout than others for a new leader.

Comments: I suspect that the folks calling this 5.7 or barely 5.8 are either on the tall side or climbed off to the left or right of the bolt line. That being said, I don't think it's 5.10, and my daughter who is 5'1" agrees. Would have been a lot more interesting as a mixed line and quite safe with 1 or 2 bolts.

Comments: I think the rating on this is height dependent. I'm 5'8" and 5.9 feels about right. If you're tall the boulder problem start won't feel like much at all. But if you're really short it will feel more like a V2 move.
