This route has a reputation for being fun, with the crux being the moves required to pull the roof sequence at the top.

Great route. You can hit the deck from over 25 feet up if you fall while clipping the fourth bolt (on the roof). If you bring a 1 or 1.5 inch cam and a long runner, I think you can minimize the risk. Mar 17, 2007

On 2/8/11, the ASCA replaced the anchors on this route with 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece bolts and equipped them with mussy hooks. Feb 9, 2011

Would be very exciting without a 1" cam! Very good route. But honestly pulling that roof is like... 10a. The harder moves are elsewhere on the route... Apr 19, 2012

Great climb, really feels like a trad climb when you get to the crux. I brought the cam that others suggested, and although it wasn't totally necessary, I was glad to have it. Shoulder length sling for rope drag Mar 19, 2013

Seems that this route is described as having one more bolt than it actually does. I looked around in the cave for a good 2 minutes before having my buddy carriage up a 1" cam on my rope to protect a pretty bad fall if you don't pull the roof correctly.

Other than that I can't complain about the routes fun factor. The face climbing at the beginning is definitely the harder part. Apr 8, 2013
