Comments: Crux bulge conveniently has the worst landing of the whole traverse.

Consistent 5.7+ with a couple cruxy bits featuring classic MG movement on slippery rock.

Start below Escapade for full value.

Comments: thin face moves at the start are the crux...5.8 after gaining the arete at around 20 ft

Comments: +1 Richard and David ^^

Though I wore myself out trying to get pro in the crack after campusing left under the roof, and couldn't pull myself up n' over on lead, the moves are solid 5.10 and (naturally) avoid sharing bolt-pro with Astropoodle.

Excellent fun and a worthy lead project for next time...

Comments: An amazing line, to be sure. Some jerk/considerate person has stashed a machete at the yucca for those who don't wish to awkwardly stem around it...IMO if you're having issues with bypassing the yucca, you should probably walk 50 yds left and climb Sunset Streaks instead.

The P1 stem-n'-squeeze was physical, but I'll agree with Riley and say that the last 10 ft of the p2 squeeze was the real hardness. I thought that the first bit of P3 deserved an R, considering the deck-potential, though I was... more >>

Comments: Stay out of the finger crack to the right of the bolts for a more sustained climb - as a bonus, I actually found it easier to make the transition to the upper face when approaching from below, rather than from the pod on the right. A stout, enjoyable climb.

Comments: the opening face moves are both the crux and most enjoyable sequence of the climb - a piece of pro in Three Friends could somewhat mitigate risk of a nasty fall before the first bolt.

Comments: With the right combo of hand-stacking and thigh-jamming one can more easily ascend to the point where the heel-toe becomes viable. Chickenwinging definitely makes B to B feel a couple of grades harder!

Comments: As Croft says, a tiny mountain-climb! IMO the 5.easy ridge traverse to the summit is the best part of the route...great rock and absolutely stellar position.
