Fun, beta-intensive climb. Did the sit start variation through a pumpy overhang with three bolts. Big move to pull through the lip and clip the fourth bolt. Finish on slightly less than vertical pockets and jugs. Anchor is two closed shuts. Watch out for falls above the last bolt before the anchors, as there is a large tree branch that is precariously close to the top of the climb. May 28, 2017

stepping over that lip put me in a cold sweat. One of the top 5 malibu routes, seems to be easier than nipple denial syndrome to the right. Oct 13, 2015

The anchors are nice new closed shuts, but both nuts on the bolts were really loose. I hand tightened then, but they need some locktight or something. Jun 17, 2012

I just did it today and I didn't think the biner was all that bad; it doesn't close all that well, but it wasn't worn terribly. The open shut is solid. Dec 5, 2009

The anchors for this route at the top are sketchy. Its one open shut hook and one biner. The biner is worn down dangerously thin. Nov 26, 2009

This is an awesome route. Tough first section to the lip. Get over the lip for a rest and work up to the bolts. I really enjoyed this and can't wait to go back and actually lead it. Nov 17, 2008
