Comments: Committing through the crux. 75 or 80 feet at most.

Comments: If we're calling Squirrel Cage 5.9, this is more like 5.7+. Gear is definitely dicey at the crux, seems like an SLCD behind that block might blow it out. Otherwise, I found it enjoyable.

Comments: I agree with Kevin - it's great to have a sustained crack climb in CT that requires good technique. That said, I got worked. It's got few rests.

Comments: I liked the climb, but the pins and the flake are indeed sketchy. While standing on the flexing flake (protected from the back with a "bomber" number 3 C4), I also felt the best horizontal over the roof wiggling. Seems like there's a ton of choss under the roof as well. Then again, it's probably been that way for a long time. Climb on!

Comments: It's all there, but a really tough on-sight climb. I hung at the roof - but loved it still!

Comments: Checked out this wall yesterday after a couple of days of on and off rain in Western WA. Most of the climbs were wet, especially at the top. Not a great spot for post rain days.

Comments: The climbing above the crux section is run out. Not the crux itself, but the (easier) climbing above it. Gear was sparse. I built an anchor in the alcove because of rope drag. The first move into the roof is exciting - a bomber left hand jam but then a dynamic move to only a decent right hand. Bump higher and it's all over. I can understand why the previous pitch is rated more difficult, but for me, this was the hardest single move on the route.

Comments: I found the move to the pin relatively straightforward, if reachy. Above the pin things got a little dicier ... didn't find good gear 'til the ledge. Am I missing something?

Comments: Great climb!

There is a beat up Alien in the hollow-sounding flake about half-way up. 6 feet below that flake is a pretty loose block.

Comments: Wild, wild crux. Went up, in the notch (just right of the tree), couldn't get feet up; went up again, tried to use crimpers up on the slabby face, came back down; finally traversed right 10 feet or so and pushed out the huge mantle. Wild.

Comments: Don't fall in the first 25 ft. Otherwise, super fun route. The roof at the top is Classic!

Comments: Watch out for "guides" spraying "beta" in your ear as they tail you or your second up P1. Awesome otherwise. My first Gunks climb. The traverse is ... airy. My partner yelled, "It's only 5.5!"

Comments: If you come in to the crux from the good holds on the left you can protect it with a small cam. Still not a comfortable fall. Going straight up in to the crux is a little harder. Roof on P2 is ... steep! Great climb!

Comments: Serious foot camming and little in-cut sidepulls in the OW made this 5.6 for me, otherwise ... harder.
