stemming up The Rooster.
This is a great route that climbs the prominent blue water groove on the left wall. It's not the typical sport route. This one requires stemming the entire pitch which is long one. Keep a cool head as it would not be good to fall( This route is known as Rooster aka razor blade alley).

The rock on this thing is.... interesting. By the second bolt, you will understand why it's also called Razor Blade Alley. There is hardly a good handhold on this entire route where you want one, so all of the difficult moves end up being pretty insecure. Unless stemming is your thing. Think Pure Palm at Smith Rock, except less good and a whole lot more scary. Don't fall.
I consider this a 1.5 star climb, I would give it two because I enjoy climbing, anything, but the three stars this thing has on here seems pretty fluffed. Definitely not a 5.10 which warrants a trip to The Roost, for the 5.10 climber who is just to do this climb. The goods start at 5.11 and up..

Pretty scary lead. I would call this a trad 10c, lots of stemming and chimneying and occasionally very painful hand jam! Classic !

I personally think this route is super classic! It's a beautiful line, very unique, requires a good lead head sure, but it's amazing and everyone should try it once.
