Description [Suggest Change]
This is a fairly sustained climb for the first two-thirds and then the climbing eases up a bit and the crack widens. This route protects very well over its entire length. Closed for a number of years because the rock is slowing migrating outward. This may have made the route harder. It certainly felt more like a 5.8 than a 5.7 to me, but this could just be because of its sustained nature. Re-opened as of Fall 2005.

Nuts, Cams, Hexes. The bottom takes medium sized stuff (large nuts to small hexes). The top takes larger stuff. Standard top rope setup with extra webbing (60 ft should more than cover it.) The rock is somewhat broken toward the edge of the cliff and the best placements are a ways back from the top of the cliff.
