Comments: Thought it was classic and super steep for the grade. Soft rating, though... maybe a 7- or a 6 even.

Comments: Mark and Nate have it right! When I got to the crux I knew if I slipped (even if my piece held) I would break a leg at best. As I turned the crux my piece fell out. :O Gulp! I consider it a pretty serious route for the 5.8-5.9 leader, unless when you're at the crux you have the perfect gear with you, and you place it perfectly. Great pro above that, though. And, a hell of a fun route.

Comments: Done this one a million times, and watched a million people on it. Crux for people is definitely getting to the horizontals and then standing on them.

A spotter is nice for that. Otherwise just a real fun classic route to me. I have a video of John Long c... more >>

Comments: Gotten alot more polished in the past 20 years. Felt like a 10a in '91, way slippery-er now, like a 10c at least in 2011.

Comments: Had alot of fun on this one, mantled no hands at the start, then fun moves past the first two bolts. Top is easy but slightly overhanging so that is exciting. More continuous would be a classic.

Comments: Ditto what Locker said, but maybe more like the bottom of the route all the way up! Anyway, really had fun on this route.
