Climb the crack to cruxy moves near the top where the crack pinches down and face moves lead to a ledge at the top. Good gear but you need to hang out a bit to get it in. Two stars out of five.


Just right of The Reverend on the west face.


Gear to 3" (including wires)


This is one of the finest 5.10A's in the park and should have three big stars. Or, if in the Vogel guide, five stars. Nov 18, 2003

Done too long ago to recall the particulars of difficulty but I hardly thought this was a decent route. Not a chosspile or anything, but not one I'd repeat. Nov 23, 2003

This deserves the s -- it was fun on toprope, but it would be a tough lead! It's a fun climb, with a nice combination of moves, and it's fairly sustained for the grade. Dec 16, 2003
Protection is really pretty good. Feb 7, 2004

I agree with Brian but only on the upper part of the route. A fun .10a route. Have to be honest....I was starting to sketch because the pro up high was shallow and not that great (managed to sink in a #5 nut before nearly blowing off it.) Dec 3, 2007
