Starting moves are on slick rock. Route is fun enough although you find yourself climbing the right hand wall of the dihedral and clipping bolts behind you. Kinda weird in that sense. Shady and convenient. Apr 9, 2007

Bolts are on the left wall so the rope runs smoothly and the falls are safe. At least that was the idea.... I did notice when I went back to do it last year, that you must keep an eye out for that 2nd bolt in the upper dihedral and position yourself to clip it. I guess it not a problem though, it has seen several hundred repeats. Apr 10, 2007

"Shady and convenient."

If you think this route is "shady," you should see the new stuff Jack is putting up.

Pretty good route and slick at the start. Real nice in the upper book area. Apr 11, 2007

Juggy climbing to start then a single tricky move to get established in the upper corner system which is much easier than it looks from the ground. Long, varied and quite enjoyable for the grade. Oct 13, 2011

Found a couple of 5.9 moves, poor rock quality in the middle, and was disappointed by the dihedral as it didn't climb anywhere near as cool as it looked. Nov 26, 2012

The second bolt along the dihedral does stand out in terms of getting a good clipping position. Stemming works but the left wall is slick. Another option is stacking the feet in the crack along the flake. Feels strange but if you get it it's secure. May 20, 2013
