Great route, short but pumpy and fun. One of the best in the area. Jul 30, 2007

Yep - agree with the above. Great little route, nice mix of thug and technical movement. Going for a redpoint burn next time, took a whipper at the crux today. Kind of a pain to clean and I would recommend a good, alert belayer. Dec 11, 2007
After clipping into the 3rd bolt, be very conscious of where you're going to swing as you move left. A large rock at your back poses a very serious ass-busting hazard once you make it a few feet out. Sep 19, 2011
GREAT CLIMB; however, how do I do it without cheating?

The first time, after the 3rd bolt, I went up and over the ridge; jug-hauling as I went up. I know that's not right right way, but at around the 4th/5th bolt, it seems like you need to get off the face and use the ridge. May 13, 2014

Great route! I liked how it followed an aesthetic line rather then going straight up. May 28, 2014

Made a trip here last year and this problem was the highlight for sure! Very fun and powerful. Apr 10, 2016

VERY fun route and a must-do at stumbling blocks. the first two clips can be preset by reaching from the boulder. Make sure belayer is 100% on you because any lead fall has potential to hit boulder. But don't let that scare you - it's as safe as you want it to be Jul 11, 2017

All of the bolts on this route are spinning and in bad condition currently (along with many other bolts in the Creek).... badly needs a rebolt with glue-ins if anyone has the time Apr 30, 2018
