Description

This climb was originally on site "flashed" in 1981 by Tim Sorenson & Jeff Shrimpton. Bolts were placed on lead. The route was previously rated 5.10b(R) in the Tucker/Steele book. The Slater guide rates it at 5.10a(R). For the longest time, you had to bring your own hangers if you wanted to climb this route. As late as 1994, the Steele book was recommending that you bring hangers just in case! Don't worry, the hangers are all there today.

After dislodging a massive boulder and unleashing it onto the access trail below, my partner decided he would tackle this climb. After multiple falls off at the third bolt, it was sent and turned into a great climb. Better if you taunt, "I sure hope they went back and got the hangers they ran out of."
