Comments: Fantastic climb! One of the better moderate outings I've had in Montana. Skipped the OW and went with the 5.9 crack to the left. Also really fun.

Comments: I went to the right side anchor and it felt a bit harder than 11a. Fun climb!

Comments: I was unaware that the route broke right at the bulge to follow the left trending under cling and instead I climbed straight up the bulge with micro gear through the seam. It was certainly harder than 5.8, but does anybody know what it goes at?

Great climb!

Comments: Midnight ascent 08-17-13. Car to car in 5 hours. We did it in 6 pitches with simul-climbing intertwined. Good times.

Comments: I second that. And Pitch 4 is 5.8, not 10a. Great route! Highly recommend stretching the rope and combining pitches 8 and 9.

Don't bring any cams, just nuts and wires.

Comments: Climbed this route over the winter but decided to do the Direct Finish. The rock quality and exposure through this finish were great! Highly recommended.

Comments: Climbed the route yesterday, and man was that upper section after the right facing corner caked in crunchy vegetation. Sure made a thrill getting to the last bolt/ topping out, but entirely worth it. I may rap it next time and brush it down, it would be worth doing. Good times!
