The route length is 105', you can't quite get to the ground with a 60m rope, but you can get to the ledge shortly off the ground. Dec 20, 2006

Bolt count is 9. Great route on great rock. Long! Rope stretch with a 60 will get you to the bottom. Make sure your belayer pays attention cause you could still fall on your ass 2 feet from the ground when they run outta rope! Aug 7, 2012

Seemed not quite as difficult, not quite as thoughtful, as Rotten Bananas to its left.
Lots of fun moves on positive holds, well worth doing.

Leading this Sport route is also useful to afterward get down and right to reach the top anchor for Banana Split to set a Top-Rope on that route (which otherwise would require leading on big-size Trad gear). Nov 28, 2014

As RussellG said, a 60m gets you down no problem.

Really fun slabby face climbing. Good for beginners to get the feel for slab without the trad bolted head game. Although the run-outs are probably my favorite part of slab. :) Mar 2, 2015

great climb on good rock with some distance between bolts. i watched someone take a 25ft fall resulting in a broken tibia. Dec 7, 2015

Bolts are reasonably spaced - if you're trying a hard move way above your last clip then reconsider your position! Mar 24, 2016

Absolutely phenomenal, sustained 5.8 moves with solid protection and great rock quality. Must do. 60 meter got me close enough (nice ledge). Sep 7, 2016

Maybe my rope is more stretchy than most but I was able to comfortably TR this with a 60m (my belayer was on the ground, not the handy ledge, and I still go all the way back down safely). Mar 27, 2017

A great route! A tiny bit thought provoking in one spot, or maybe it was the howling wind? Slightly harder than the other 5.8s we did.
395 closed to semis on the epically windy drive home.
Our 70m rope easily reached with a couple feet left over. Apr 20, 2018
Russ Walling,

Was just there yesterday and saw the blood stain. Another group said someone fell and their ankle essentially "exploded". Nov 26, 2018

That was a ton of blood. At first, I thought someone was painting hangers to disguise them and dropped a paint can. Nov 27, 2018

To try to clear the bloody spot up: I think it was either November 3rd or 4th. We pulled up right after the blood letting and holy guacamole! Between the splattered hanger and about a half inch deep pool in that dish, initially figured it was a header. Two parties had witnessed and shortly after the partner of the bleeder swung back up to grab his draws. Sounded like lead fall with a weird wet cut that was easily closed up down in Lone Pine.
