Description

This route looks cooler than it is, but because it looks so cool it's still not bad. It appears that a lot of the flakes have come off making it somewhat awkward in sections. Many of the flakes that remain are glued in place, which is somewhat interesting. Also, I recommend rappelling the route (or having a second follow) because it can be hard to clean while being lowered.

Location

As you approach the crag the route is to the left, and climbs up and over the arete with a great big view behind it.

Protection

5 bolts to lower offs. The first bolt can be clipped by a tall climber from the ground, and there is a steep drop off from the start so you may want to do that.

Nice picture Tom, probably the best thing about the route is how photogenic it is. Sep 19, 2007

The climb itself is nothing amazing, but the exposure and the view from the top definitely make it worth it. And how often do you get to pull on flakes that bend? Apr 4, 2010

One of the large glued on flakes finally fell off, I think by the third bolt? The climb is still doable, maybe a half grade harder since that flake was a very useful hand and foot hold, but you can get by on some small rails instead Oct 29, 2012

Just climbed this route this past weekend. I wasn't expecting much given the comments, but I enjoyed it. It's definitely thin after the 3rd bolt, but I believe it is still 9+. It's got some really interesting footwork and transition over the arete. Probably won't do it again, but it was fun nonetheless Nov 6, 2018
