  • Description 

    This is really good route. I am not sure if it is a FA. An old Rolo guide has it as a 5.?. Start on Capt. Beyond, cut left at first roof, obvious ring bolt. Cool movement, cross overs and stuff. 2 more pins get you to the left crack. Climb this all the way to the big ledge. This is a long pitch with lots of climbing. The 1st pin is tough to clip. It could possibly get a PG-13 rating. The grade might be a wee bit soft, we climbed "Three Mousketeers" next to it and it felt as hard, that gets a 5.11c. Whatever, this is highly recommended.

    Bring a couple extra in the yellow and green Alien size.

    Kevin, this is a good line. I seem to remember doing it a very long time ago, but don't remember going all the way over to the other crack (Beginner's Mind?). I do not think we were the first to do this either.
    Killer climbing on killer rock.

    It's such a long pitch! Never lets up either. Excellent climbing on great rock, bring lots of gear!
