Moves requiring dodging and weaving to each side of the arete make the route really entertaining.

[Hide Comment] FA was by Rick Bradshaw, in 2000. I might have been helping out that day too, but I can't remember. I did help Rick put up about 10 of the Cockcomb routes.

[Hide Comment] Excellent climbing on flawless stone. I had to do a couple of dynos. One on the techy, slabby start, one on the steep arete. May 24, 2007

[Hide Comment] Neat route! I haven't climbed many 5.11s with cruxes as committing and memorable as the dyno on this one! Mar 30, 2012
