Description

A great, varied climb up cracks and jugs. Start at a crack below a roof. Climb up and through the roof with great hand jams. Good flakes lead up to a leftward traverse leading to the final crack. Very fun climbing on great rock.

Super fun and varied climbing make this a great warm-up for the harder lines here. Sustained for the grade but crack technique helps. Jan 24, 2007

Fantastic climbing. The first few feet look a bit scrappy, but after that the climbing is superb. Jul 31, 2008

Pumpy for .10a, a great line. I thought this was harder than Black Lassie, the .10d! Aug 21, 2008
Great sustained climbing! A few hollow flakes near the top, but other than that it is 5 star 10a climbing! Sep 29, 2010

Maybe it was the tiring six day backpack my girlfriend and I completed the day before but this thing had me pumped out of my mind! Incredible little climb though. Sep 3, 2011

This climb has been lead fully on gear. While not recommended it is a fun adventure of 10a r/x maybe? Jul 8, 2014

After the initial overhang, it's dead vertical to the top. Remarkable that no single move is harder than 10a.
But it keeps coming at you.
Would be even better if it required more variety of techniques. Aug 10, 2014

Stoked to finally do this one. Quite pumpy. Nothing harder than 10a, but it's got a solid 10 pump factor. It actually overhangs the whole way. At least the rope hung free all the way from the anchors, so that's good enough for me. Keep moving and shake out where you can. I was able to get a pretty good knee-bar up high to help shake out.

Great route. Beautiful rock and position. Super pumpy. Loved the varied face and crack moves. Can't wait to come back for more. Aug 12, 2018
