Dangerous for a 5.9 leader, easy to deck on the sharp ledge if you blow the crux moves getting past the first bolt. Also it's solid 5.10 if you try to go straight to the second bolt instead of staying right (and even staying right is very tough 5.9). I wouldn't be surprised if a hold or two broke off at some point. Short leaders may need an extendo draw to clip the first bolt. Aug 23, 2015

Not bad, I agree the hardest part was at the first bolt. Some cool moves up higher. Jan 8, 2013

Agree with LG that the moves below the first bolt are the most difficult. You can ensure that you get that first bolt clipped (I can do it being 5'9"), then work the bouldery start.

After that start, I had fun. Some of the holds are a little dirty. Sep 10, 2012

I liked this little route. It seemed that the hardest moves were the footwork to get on the wall at the first bolt. Also, one of the blocks you're likely to pull on to get up to the ledge, about 3/4 of the way up on the right, isn't solid and looks glued down with dirt. Aug 22, 2009
