Comments: I climbed this route today, and it wasn't much fun. The climbing is very very dirty. We continued 3 pitches to the top of the Black Widow Slab and walked off in between Sleeping Beauty and Black Widow. The climbing is easy on the first pitch, but the gear does suck pretty bad and the moss is plentiful. Barely 1 star, more like 0.5 stars.

Comments: This route isn't good at all. The looseness of the rock makes it kind of serious, so make sure your belayer wears a helmet for sure. I tried to avoid the loose sections as best as I could making it probably a bit harder, but if you just tromp around on the flakes, it is probably 5.8. Anyways, super crappy climb. Not recommended at all.

Comments: Great route, but the start kind of sucks. Getting to the second bolt is not super hard, but don't blow it. Crux is awesome but not very straight forward. The crux for me was staying on route, there was chalk everywhere. Good stuff though.

Comments: Just a heads up, the last pitch is interesting. After the bolt/pin ladder, we went left towards the arete. This may not be the way to go but to the right looked harder. No real pro after the bolts though.

Comments: I agree with using a #3 or #4 nut before the crux. I didn't expect as much exposure and hugging the arÍte was way awesome. The top anchor is fine and the tat has collected some newer looking spectra.

Overall super great climb

Comments: Watch out when pulling your rope. We got our rope slung on a big block in the dihedral. Ended up pulling the block down right on top of us and it landed straight on my pack. Fun little tower but what a hike! Geez!!

Comments: Vic, I went back today and found the bolts. It was snowing like crazy last year and the bolts must have been covered in snow. They were easily spotted today. I agree, you can climb this whole climb at like WI3. But there are some sweet harder lines.

Comments: The red flowers are castilleja, and I think the blue/purple flowers are lupinus. I can't tell what the yellow flowers are though.

Comments: My friends and I called this route "Sexy Time" because it was a pretty fun crack to climb. A fall from the start wouldn't be that bad, but a fall from the top could be very bad. Fun route.
