A fun route when combined with others on the wall.
A little funky looking when staring up from the bottom as far as protection goes, but if solid at the grade should be no problem. It had me thinking though.


The next crack right of Ernie Pyle.


standard rack with a sling for a flake.

One alright move on dirty rock. Kind of a let down quite honestly, but if you're in the mood to pile up the number of routes in this fun area, just knock it out and move on...

Yeah - a bit dirty and just a bit rattly, this one looked like a lot more fun than it turned out to be. Strung it as a top rope for some new climbers and they had a blast though!! Worthwhile Pile (5.7) is by far the better route here though, along with Holden On (5.10a).
