11-19-2007 At the 3rd bolt 2 of the key handholds were coming loose, one was the size of a microwave. Be aware of those below you... Nov 25, 2007

Cool climb. My first in the gorge. It'll get you thinking right off the ground and you'll stay kinda pumped all the way through the crux. Enojy! May 29, 2011

Accident on 10/15/16 on this route. Saw a pretty big guy pull off a Huge chunk of rock (think watermelon size) before the roof. It came straight down to the belayer, she got pulled in while he fell after pulling the rock off. Luckily it miss her head, but it did totally smash her right foot. I was first on scene with other climbers around helping to get her out using the liter near the bathrooms.

i did some repair work here. replaced the very worn cold shuts with 2 big 1/2" bolts and new mussy hooks. pulled off the remaining 40 lb. piece of loose rock that was next to the one that came off (it was just barely hanging there).
i also was on the carry out, sure would like to know how that gal is doing? if anyone knows please pm me Dec 30, 2016

Fantastic route, although if you do the lower crux wrong, the bolt is super hard to clip. I'd also vote for the first bolt to be moved two to three feet to the right and have it be a stick clip mandatory route. As it is, if you biff the exit moves past it, the fall would not be awesome. Dec 31, 2017
