Fun stemming down low. Higher up decide to keep stemming, or jam the nice left crack to the bolted anchors.


The third route to the left of Southern Cross. Starts up two cracks (the left one is about 4 inches) just left of a stumpy pillar.


gear to 3 inches

This got officially downgraded to a .9 in the new guidebook while Cruel Sister got a slight promotion to a 10b and something called Titus (a whaaaa?!??...exactly) made VP by going from a 5.9 to a 5.10b R :) Feb 11, 2010

I agree with the 5.9. This feels significantly easier than any of the 10a or 10b routes in the gorge. A perfect warm up. Jun 9, 2011

Felt just like 5.9 to me, maybe even a tad soft. Fun, do it.

Edit: Climbed again and stayed in the left crack. Felt like stout 5.9 that way, but still not .10a Sep 17, 2012
