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.


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.


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.

man, I hated this climb.....interesting to read Brian M's comment now, that section felt really thin and awkward today. worth it for the exposure and the view but I won't be getting on this again... Apr 6, 2013

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

I could only find 4 bolts before the LO on this route. May 12, 2012

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
if a route needs to be glued that much, whats the point? Mar 29, 2010

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