Difficult to place protection and fairly runout. This climb may be better left as a toprope. Climb up to a crack that doesn't quite touch bottom, then pull through many large huecos to the top. Set an anchor with large cams.


Nuts and small cams, large cams for the anchor


Felt more like a 5.4. A great solo. Jugs galore. Dec 31, 2004

So what gives with this route? The comment above says 5.4, yet the individual gives it a rating of 5.8-. The consensus is that it's a 5.7, yet those who vote call it a 5.6. Anyone have any insight on this one that might be helpful? Nov 8, 2009

Climbed this today. Both my wife and I found it harder than 5.6. Protection was better than I expected but a bit run out at the top. Great route though. There is a bolt at the end (for an anchor). Dec 30, 2013

felt pretty true to 5.6 for me, but the moves were a bit awkward/bouldery. pro was a little funky on a lot of it. you can find it all though, just need to keep looking. Feb 10, 2015

Says 5.6 in my guidebook. I felt like that was accurate. Either way, good climbing with plenty of places to take gear. It says in my guidebook that its sparse, but I sewed it up. Also, there's 1 newer looking bolt up top. Feb 20, 2017
