Brass and/or offset stoppers useful. Not really one to push your abilities on, as the crux roof moves would have you hitting the slab below at speed if you blow it. At least PG-13. That said, a cool and enjoyable pitch on mostly great rock. Traverse left about 10' when the ramp ends to a double coldshut anchor. Wires, brass, tcus/aliens up to 1.5". Nov 25, 2008

A brown tri-cam in a hueco protects the heck out of the roof Apr 22, 2009

Red C4 in a pocket out left is bomber for the bulge. Heady pull on lead over the bulge, then it lets up. Oct 18, 2009

I don't know if "thin hands" is really an accurate description for the splitter crack in the beginning of this route. It's more like sustained fingers with a hand pod near the top of the crack. But, either way, it's a beautiful route and should not be missed. Bring small cams and brass. Apr 22, 2012

Take some small stoppers for this thing- you'll want them for sure. Really good climbing- very engaging the entire way with a heady pull at the bulge. May 4, 2012

Bottom section is definitely fingers, and I have a small hand. Roof is super fun. Offset nuts would help protect the upper portion, I didn't have any so used a few metolius #1-2 to slot inside the horizontal cracks on the left, tri-cam would also help here. Dec 14, 2012
On 10/16/13 thanks to a donation from the ASCA the anchor was replaced on this route using SS 1/2" by 3 1/2" 5 pieces and double ring hangers. Oct 17, 2013
