When the route is not wet or slimy, as the name suggest, this is a great route for the easy grade. Perfect hand jams, bomber cams settings, and a sustained 5.7 section makes this a triple star in my opinion. Tie in while on the block, back from the route, get your belay slave ready and take the swing... then lower down to the start. Just a quick "jump" start to get your blood pumping.


A medium-sized rack will do just fine.

This is a route well worth doing. The crux [I think] is definitely near the top where the crack flares to the right. But definitely a 5.7. Dec 13, 2006

I vote for the smeary flaring moves in the upper transition area as being the crux, a little freaky to lead on if getting into trad. Jun 16, 2006

Good Fun climb. You have to love a 5.7 crack that requires pure jamming. I think the crux is the first 15 feet or the smeary moves at the top. Feb 16, 2006

Make sure it has been dry for a few days. If the top of the crack is wet, the climb turns from a fun 5.7 to an [awful] experience. Jun 12, 2005

Classic route and well worth climing. Solid jams and well protected 5.7. Jun 29, 2003
Fabulous climb for the grade. If it's wet, it is substantially more difficult. Jun 3, 2003
If there is a crux, I would say it's near the top where the crack rounds out a bit and is sometimes on the dirty side. May 22, 2003

I [couldn't really find] a crux on this climb, and just found sustained, bomber jams the whole way... Aug 22, 2002

IMHO - the crux is the first 15 - 20 feet. Aug 22, 2002
