I thought this was very fun and pretty easy--a nice relief from the relentless splitters at the creek! Jul 17, 2007
The crack in the dihedral nearly ate our rope when we pulled it from the anchors. Make sure to stand well to the right of the anchors when pulling your rope. Also might want to pull the right side of the line as well. Oct 17, 2010

Perhaps the best 5.9 at the Creek, although the awkward start will give many 5.9 leaders a hard time. Not much of a warm-up for the crag classics, but a great option for beginners. Apr 15, 2013

Awesome route. You get to taste hands, big hands, and some fists. This was my first creek lead. Super pumped on it. The variety of hand sizes keeps things interesting. Very protect-able. Oct 8, 2018
