If you rack with longer quickdraws or runners bring them along. Lots of ways to extend but 4 & 5 with something longer than 6" would help straighten the line. The drag with standard quickdraws isn't awful, but something easily avoided with 8" draws or runners. Great route. Oct 29, 2017
Harder than La La Land for me, done both several times. Nov 11, 2016
Worn, open shuts replaced with new bolts and mussy hooks. Paid for by donations collected at Wilson's and the Rubber Room. Mar 16, 2012

Really terrific route! Can't wait to do it again! Aug 16, 2009
Amazing route! The steep traverse diagonaling line from the first bolt to the arete is the crux, and with only 15' of climbing leaves you with over 100' of air beneath your heels! After a rest perched on the arete, get ready to puzzle through steadily thinning holds to a tricky second crux just below the anchor. A superb pitch, one of my favorite sport climbs ever. Jan 18, 2007
