Protection on this route is actually quite good. 1 medium/large nut on a long runner can be placed at the rest before the roof, and a yellow cam goes nicely into one of the pods under the roof (don't put it in the wrong one or the crux is harder). After the roof, there is no pro but the climbing is 5.3. Mar 14, 2012

There is gear to protect before the roof. A few medium sized nuts and a few hand sized cams will get you up and over the roof. Oct 20, 2011

I think 10b/c is a little generous for this climb! It was originally rated 5.9 and I believe that feels pretty accurate. Feb 16, 2007
