Fun route. The biggest gear i used was a .75 Camalot. Mark, thanks for putting in low profile, high quality anchors. Looks like going left after the lower bulge could make for a tougher finish. Dec 20, 2006

Climbs like a sport climb, protects like a trad climb. Fun moves. Jun 24, 2016

Really enjoyed this route. Takes a bit of effort to get to, and would make for a good first or last route if you're in the area.

Definitely climbed like a sport route with good rock. You can actually top-out at the anchors, though I don't think you can get back to the trail due to the fence. May 7, 2018
