I have to disagree with the reference to IHMT having poor feet in the first fifteen feet of climbing. Marginal finger jams yes but feet are key here and are quite positive considering the overhanging nature of that part of the route. Jan 27, 2009

Bolts are conveniently located on top for easy top-roping. This climb has got to be one of the best at Mt. Rubidoux, although it sees little action. The opening moves are very powerful lock-offs on pin scars with very poor feet--similar opening to Hear My Train A Comin' at Mt. Woodson. It stays fairly sustained for about 15 feet, with pretty poor feet the whole way. I'm guessing a lot of 5.13 gym/sport climbers could easily get schooled on this thing. It has been flashed at least a couple of times in the 1980s by some Woodson locals. It is also somewhat popular as a practice aid climb (use clean gear!). Apr 2, 2008
