Took Joe and I two days to clean the choss off this wall. Joe set the bolts and I led the FA. 5.10c/d.

A nice route with a fun crux.

Two of the three bolts at the anchor were a bit wiggly . . .

I personally think this is a better warm up than it's easier neighbor, Gorgeous. It's a straight forward route, a little pumpy but all the falls are clean. Overall, a MUST do if you're at Mt. Gorgeous IMHO

Great route! The business starts after the alcove..up good jugs through overhanging rock to the tricky sharp pocket move..then up and over and on to your feet again and the anchors above. One of my favorites at the creek.
