Great sustained route. A little overhung to feel the pump for the 2nd half of the route. The start has some greasy holds so chalk up for the first two bolts. Sep 4, 2014

Quintessential sport climbing. It has always been fashionable to downgrade the line to 10d, despite it being more difficult that every other 10d in the park (except Heat Seeking Moisture Missile). Nov 21, 2017
Great climb. Noticed hanger on third (or fourth?) bolt could spin a little on Feb 3rd 2018. Didn’t tug on the bolt itself, but it looked nice and shiny. If someone carries a wrench; may want to tighten. Feb 8, 2018
