Yes, it is frail. It being new, a lot of stuff pops off of it. But very fun regardless.

Not too frail anymore. Fun route on nice varnished jugs...traversing bolt line is kind of goofy, but I guess the FAist was trying to extend the fun. This whole cliff is going to be as popular ar the corridor and panty wall soon.

For 5.7 this is a FUN line. It does kind of meander a bit but there's such a great variety [hard to find at 5.7] that it's worth doing. And it's got enough exposure to scare newby climbers!

Just bring a longer sling or double up draws on the odd bolt that is off to the right. Last two bolts before the top are spaced a little farther apart than the rest, which combined with the sandy slab holds, adds a little excitement for leaders near the top. Good time.

Crux is definitely the small blank looking section ~2/3 of the way up, though finding the great slot at the top of it makes it easy. Would make a great first lead and always a nice warm-up.
