this is a fun addition to the echo slab climbs, in a few seasons this will be the most popular moderate in the echo cove. from the anchors you can top-rope pinky lee another excellent climb. Dec 16, 2004

I've led this thing a few times and agree that it is worth doing. Dec 17, 2004

A well-protected and fun addition to the area which, no doubt, will see lots of traffic as word of it's existence spreads. Two stars out of five. Jan 19, 2005

I thought the route was fun and allowed an easy rap down from several routes. However, is this route that much different in difficulty than WAC and One Shoe? If they are 5.8 shouldn't this route be perhaps 5.8- for consistency (perhaps the five bolts reduced the difficulty level)? Apr 21, 2005

those other routes in my opinion are really about 5.6 not 5.8 as they are claimed. Dec 14, 2005

I've climbed this route three times, and have led it twice. the most recent was on November 18th. It was hot and greasy. I believe under those conditions the route is 5.7+ Nov 22, 2007

100% pure friction. I think I managed a few v10 cranks on crystals to get up this one! Yea, I took a hang just to calm my jittery leg...SO! Mar 30, 2009
The bolts are hard to clip if you are short. Feb 2, 2015

Fun route, really slabby, not much to grab but a real confidence booster for those learning to lead. I met Bob Gaines while he was with one of his clients. A buddy and I knocked this one off our list and then I had the honor of belaying Bob on this route as he walked right up it like it was nothing. I found the route to be tough for my second sport lead and was in aww of Bob. Really cool, really memorable day.... belaying Bob Gaines HA! Jan 4, 2016
