Description

Awesome stemming route especially if you have long legs. The book claims anyone over 6' can drop a letter grade, make what you want of that. placing gear on the left seemed best to me. Hard part is seeing what you place. Eventually move left to a bolted anchor or top out.

Protection

Bring many small tcu's and stoppers for the bottom, some hand-sized pieces for the top.

The book is correct. I'd say it's 5.11b if are short, or 5.10d if you are tall. Mar 16, 2009

I thought this climb was about 5.10c, especially in comparison to routes at Devil's Tower. Lots of finicky small wires. For what it's worth, I'm 5'5" Jan 23, 2012

There is also a boulder problem in D-ton (NW WA) by the same name.

Both routes look great. Oct 8, 2014
