The bottom is decent movement on not-so-great rock.  Upper part has a faintly alpine feel that I like.


First route encountered on the approach. Follows a flake and crack system for 60 feet.


Bolts and chains.

If you have hate in your heart over this route you need to find the love. It's longer than many routes at The Steep, and after the first ten feet it is fun to climb. The Anchors like many at this crag are poorly placed which means the rope runs over the rock more than it needs to. I took a fat rope (11mm) so I wouldn't wreck my skinny rope. Jun 27, 2006
I think that if the rock quality were a little better this would deserve 2 stars Jul 20, 2008

I think this route is a lot of fun. It has a lot of variety and a lot of climbing. May 6, 2009

Now that Tony is no longer with us, I can safely say: I lowered the anchors to a much better spot. The climb is improved, and it no longer tries to destroy your rope. Aug 20, 2011
Glen Todd did the FA on this with Tony belaying him. Route is fun after first 2 bolts, each of which should be one foot higher in order to make the route safer and more fun through the crumbly rock section. May 21, 2012
