Crack felt really slick inside, and lieback really difficult. Sorta dirty apart from that..definitely not ideal Oct 27, 2014

This climbs better than it looks. Face, lieback, a mini easy chimney/tube. Like some other routes at this cliff, I think this route could benefit from a rap station at the top.. in this case on the far right to keep down rope drag. This would solve 2 problems 1) belaying from the eroding dirt covered cliff edge creates erosion -- especially if your follower weights the rope as the rope basically gets forced to run through a dirt filled small gulley 2) the erosion basically rains down on the follower the whole time. I wonder if the other commenter here was experiencing dirt created by the belay of either a previous party or theirs.

Pro is bomber, moves are fun and the crux is physical. Interesting climbing getting established in the chimney. Would get 1 more star if the belay could be set up more pleasantly. Oct 25, 2017
