If the crux feels impossible, you're missing something. I fell 6 or 7 times at the crux before I finally found what worked. Also, watch your right ankle jamming in the right crack. Something about the angle/direction caused me to tear something in my ankle on the easy section before the crux. A bit of a bummer, but I'll be back for the RP when I'm healed. Jan 6, 2018

I'm surprised this route doesn't get more stars. This is one of the best 5.10's I've climbed in the Forks so far. It's an extremely clean line with great gear and solid stances every 8-10 ft leading up to the crux. Felt like a route you'd find in the Creek. Can't wait to come back and get this one clean. For someone at their limit, I'd recommend: (2) .4 - 1 and singles of 2-3. Jan 15, 2018
