Fun warmup. To comfort yourself on the step around the corner, make one move up the inside corner to clip the bolt, then step back down and around. Oct 21, 2013

Fun climb with technical crux right off the ground; psychological crux comes later for new leaders, since the traverse is somewhat blind and all air below you (for 20'). A quick way to find some 'cute' exposure. May 20, 2012

Agree completely with Jon. It's a good mix of big/small holds, a broken roof, some ladder, and an arete that freaked me out (only my second outdoor climb)

[Update]: Just did it using a completely different route past the roof near the bottom and it was almost a completely new climb. Oct 3, 2010
I am a newer leader and found this route very fun! I liked the interesting moves, especially the start and the move left onto the arete. I traversed over as soon as I could, and found the moves secure with a big jug for my left hand (hidden until you pull onto arete). Some of my friends started the traverse higher up while on TR, which looked more difficult. Jul 13, 2010

one of my first leads. there's a traverse about 2/3 of the way up the climb that freaked me out because i was above my gear and i had to reach blindly around the corner to find the holds, then clipping the next bolt was hard from the position i found myself in. there's nothing like a little terror to help the ol' gibblets drop for the real leads later on.
