This route is some what crumbly, but getting much better with traffic. I like the way it makes you climb it precisely. It is fully protected by bolts, but is just spicy enough to keep you attenuated as you watch the piranha teeth of the Smoky Dike below you, ready to chew you up if you clumsily blow a foothold and take a spinning, screaming fall. Actually, it is a good route, warming up the body and mind.

Agreed, a bit chossy but fun. I do it every time I go there. It is a lot harder than it looks from the ground.
