|Great route! I have to admit I am glad I was topping it, going over the last bolt is nerve racking. Well worth the climb though. As an added bonus on your way down have your belayer stop you 3/4 of the way down and just take a moment to soak in some of the best scenery around while the waves crash below you.|

|Not nearly as fun as it's hyped up to be. Actually quite terrifying, especially if you have to lead it on a soaking wet rope. Also a bit runout after the 3rd (and last) bolt to the anchor. However, at least the brand new glue-ins are super safe thanks to Jimi's rebolting efforts!|

|Loved this route. It's true that it's a bit hairy above the 3rd bolt, but only b/c it's sandstone: jugs abound and the stance for anchor clipping is solid. Pulling out of the chimney with the waves crashing below is absolutely amazing... at least, in retrospect it's amazing.|

|Epic! 5.9 if you're a trad climber. 5.11 if you're a boulderer.|

Best route I have done at Salt Point!
The 10a grading is accurate. This route has multiple cruxes and is quite sustained.
I took a few cams and slings, placed one in the corner below the roof and extended it with three slings.
It is quite a heady lead not because the pro is bad or runout but the exposure climbing through the roof is incredible.
