Stick clip first two bolts. Great crux at bottom. This route has been extended as of fall 2006. The block that all the weak minded people used at the top is now gone. You must stay on face and continue up the black face.

Ha. How hard is the extension?

I did not climb the extension yet just cleaned and equipped it. I think it may add a letter for sure, crimpers and slopers! Then the Quest extension will go to the same anchors. It follows the prow. I do not think it will add any grade just 30 more feet on super good rock.

This is an excellent route. The bottom is VERY strong and I had to aid through the bear hug move. The rest is beautiful and sustained with big holds and excellent movement. Not as reachy as maximum overdrive. Well bolted. I hang-dogged up it on lead, but another one of our party onsighted it. It was probably 5.12a/b based on his abilities. Highly recommended!

Super Fun! The bottom crux has a real OUCH factor on tiny crimping under-clings, best to get it done the first try.
