Not that impressed. The dirtiest of the routes that we did here. Maybe if it cleans up I'll give it a star....

This is a fun and interesting route with the dihedral feature. Well protected, but we use the anchors for the 11a (which no one is ever on) to prevent rope drag. It has clearly cleaned up well since 2005 (as has most of the wall).

ya using teh anchors for the 11a is the way to go. did setup a fun TR for my boys 5 and 3. the first part is actually easier for little ones I thought than the easier climbs on the wall

The right top anchor on this route is a spinner, seemed solid but still a bit sketchy. As mentioned above the anchors for the route next door work well, I'd suggest using those instead.

Anchor still has a spinner, didn't have anything to tighten it with. Led on trad gear. Good placements the whole way, use lots of nuts to fit the changing crack size. It's pretty clean now, few loose pebbles and dirt close to the top.

This is a fun climb. Belay spot is weird, and the first two bolts are 5.6ish, but then there is a fun chimney that makes you feel like you're climbing OW, with a bit of a roof on top.

Dont be tempted to bail to the right, stick left and climb over the top mini roof to the 11a anchors.. your rope with thank you later.
