First 30 feet is sustained and thin. Above roof is loose and easy. It needs much more cleaning to be enjoyable.


In the middle of Boneyard between the 5.10 and 5.12

Ryan promised me he and Steve would go spend some more time cleaning this route up. After they do it will be a fine route, well worth doing.
A bit of a bag at .10+.
OK Ryan brushed some more lichen off the route. So .10d is fair rating.

Climbed this route again. It's cleaned up nicely and deserves at least 1.5 stars. Still think it's a bag at 10+. Everyone pulled or stepped on the little tree to make upward progression.

I never touched the tree but I wanted to. Pretty hard for 5.10+
