I enjoyed this route, but i have an attraction to under climbed route that are a little dirty, if that is what you like i suggest this... Dec 15, 2008

I agree with the description to beware of falling objects from above; while we were on this route a loose helmet came a careening down and could easily have given belayer or climber a good whack. For the route itself, the guidebook described one awkward move which we found was actually easier for shorter climbers. May 26, 2012

Nice warm-up route for some of the steeper stuff on below the new wave. A bit dirty at some spots, but that's to be expected on a slabby 5.6. Also a good beginner route. However, if you're a novice leader or short it helps to have a pre-hung draw on the tricky third bolt.
In regards to the other reviews, everything at the top seemed solid, but I can understand objects falling from the new wave being a concern. Oct 21, 2012

I did this on Trad gear and it went surprisingly well. It was PG-13 in the area of the first 2 bolts, because the rock quality was questionable, but the top protected very well. A fun way to spice this route up and make it more interesting if you climb well above the grade. I enjoyed it, there's some cool moves and it really isn't THAT dirty. May 22, 2016
