Description

The route starts easy and quickly involves good footwork - smearing and occasional small edges. Fun moves in the thin, crux section. Eases up after the crux to good holds and good feet.

Protection

There is a single bolt at the crux. On top there are two good anchors. Walkoff is easy and to climbers left if facing Playhouse Rock. Not what I would consider a beginners route. Can be top roped with draws/slings/cordelette etc...

Thought the route was amazing. Great start and easier finish, have to be calm on the hard slab at the beginning, crux for me was after clipping the bolt. Mar 12, 2016

The route is good value ad to the area. Protects better than it looks and the slab area after the bolt is somewhat tenuous. It's good and both times to the crag never saw any traffic other than ours. Oct 23, 2010

Fun route. You can place a medium cam under the roof. Still, I wish this climb protected better; it's a long way above the crux to the next placement. Feb 16, 2008

A decent route that, despite the name, offers reasonable protection. The bolt was replaced spring 2000 and is 3/8".
