The start requires a nice, challenging, bouldery move. Also, it seems to me that it would be easy to deck on this route. There is quite the run between 1st and 2nd as well as between 2nd and 3rd bolts (at least for a 35 foot climb). Have fun but be careful.

I agree with the last post on this climb; the start is solid 5.9 IMHO and pretty stout getting to a good stance for the first clip. It is runout afterwards but easy (mellow 5.8ish). The bouldery start is very fun though, must do!

The bouldery start is only a move or two. Took me a try or two to get it right, but after that it seemed like easy 5.7- climbing. I agree that you could deck easily, but only if you missed the great holds that are up there. Still a fun climb after the great first few moves.

I moved bolt three down a little, eliminating the R factor. I pulled the old anchors, added three more bolts to the route and ran it all the way to the top of the wall. The view from up there is AWESEOME!

I just climbed this route this weekend, and counted 9 bolts to the chains. Thanks for the additions Jason! I imagine doing this one with only 3 bolts would be a little intimidating!
