Description 

A filthy mammoth of a climb, if chewed in one bite. The line is relatively indistinct, but it is possible to be lowered to climber's far left, down the slope towards the bottom of the hill, and climb the entire route from there. If you do this, expect: 1) a huge swing possibility into the hill, 2) a hell of a lot of dirt and brush, and 3) some fun tree branch swings that are required to get through the mess. Although I haven't done it, I think it's also possible to start higher up on the hill and jump on the route when it's a little less jungle style.
The upper stretch of the route contains the harder rock moves, and the rating is traditional for these moves. If climbed more often, these moves may take on a nice, clean feel.
It's not generally what you look for in a rock climb, but when you've made it to the top, you really feel that you've accomplished something. Bring eye drops to help your eyes get all the dirt out if you go the long way. I'd give it two stars, but I think I might get some angry comments.


Location 

It's the farthest route on the climber's left side of the cliff - It faces The Path of Fierce Black Wolves on the opposite, and left side of the big gully.


Protection 

Toprope recommended.
