A really fun route! a nice warm up for other climbs.

The first bolt is a move up, but its not that bad. There's a nice feature to step up onto on the left wall to make the first clip. May 11, 2010

First bolt is "a move" up, with a bad landing ( slotted chimney ). It was obviously placed from the highest stance, but IMO is poorly placed for a 5.10a leader. Granted we are only talking about a foot or two, but it seems silly to put in a new line with and anchor and all, with a potentially bad ground fall.

That said, the climbing is discontinous, with a fun stemming dihedral ( 2 bolts ) leading to a easy section to a short slab section ( 2 bolts ). The first section really works your stemming technique, good route to work it with. Mar 14, 2005
