Description

5.7 climbing to the first bolt can give you a false sense of security. Thin holds on a slight bulge leave you wishing for a longer reach. The small roof requires a tricky sequence for those short in stature. The Ruckman guide rates this as 5.8. Feels more like a 5.9+ to me, even the second time around.

Protection

4 bolts to chains. Bring QDs and a helmet.

Easy climbing except that the rock is crumbling everywhere. The bolts are solid. I would call this a 5.8. Bring a helmet for both parties. Apr 4, 2016

Things start feeling a little runout between the second and third bolt. I was getting pumped out. BUT, I'm barely a 5.10 lead climber. So keep in mind I am a relative novice. The route was nice and clean- no choss to wound my belay. The northern aspect also make this prime real estate in the summer. May 30, 2013

Good 5.9, thin, edgy and balancey. Big feet are hiding right at the lip, otherwise the roof would be tricky Sep 11, 2006

I felt that this route was at least as hard as the other. So 5.9ish... The routes must be cleaning up. I expected a lot more choss (there's some). Good Warm-up. This area deserves more traffic... Apr 28, 2006
