Description

This is the line just right of Flying Dutchman. Some forestry managment skills come in handy.

This route should be done more often. It would definitely benefit from a bit more traffic, but is in stellar shape as is. You'll be glad the trees are there, and at one point my partner was stemming between two tree trunks. Classic! Sep 4, 2013

The trees come in handy, as did a 3.5 and 4 camalot for the awkward grovel at the start. One big cam may be sufficient but I don't think a three would of worked for me. Nov 12, 2011

With the exception of Flying Dutchman, this is the best route on the wall, IMO. Liebacking those thin flakes at 5.7 is cool. I can't think of many 5.7 better than the middle section. Unfortunately, it feels a little shortlived. The chimney at the bottom is casual. I think easier than the 5.6 chimney after the trough on standard thumb. As for the rack, take an assortment up to #3 camalot with extra 1" to 2" sized pieces. Lotsa slings. Climbing past the trees is not bothersome at all. May 31, 2010
