|This route has steep moves on good rock with some interesting gear between good bolts. Makes a good direct start to Watch Crystal Crack or Simians.|

|Agree that linking this into the Watch Crystal Crack makes for a stellar pitch.|

I wonder why Kozak "bombed" this route...?
The movement is similar and the climbing is as fun as Apes, Durangotan, Crime and Punishment, etc. Just a few pieces of gear recommended and otherwise enjoyable bolted climbing.

We modernized this great route in 2007 and replaced the original bashies and angle iron hangers that Bruce Lella had placed in the '70s with 4" Rawl bolts and stainless hangers. If you happen to see this Bruce, I still have your hangers if you want them back. You can still make out your signature on them!
Also think this route makes for a great single pitch linkup to Simians to the Sun. It's direct, and with modern ropes, it makes for an outstanding long pitch!
