Description

This is a classic Herbert rig that follows a seam up an immaculate wall. The crux comes early and is just a few moves long (I’d guess about V4 or 5). If you boulder or know how to campus it’s bound to feel easy. But, you still have to have enough fitness to romp through some fun 5.11 at the top. Great route; very striking.

Protection

7 bolts to closed shuts. yes, shuts. Needs mussy's fo' sho'.

The crux is right off the bat and it is reach dependent. Even with long arms it's a hard couple of moves. Definitely harder than v4 (I'm talking to you Tim, you strong bastard). I think I remember a no-hands rest off of a butt scum up higher before the last steep section. Apr 1, 2013

Super classic, striking and follows a definite feature...not typical Gorge edge hauling. The crux is harder but doable for shorter folks. Jan 11, 2007
