up high, imho, but the whole route is pretty interesting. i just hope that choss at the bottom stays there, otherwise, the route could get harder off the ground. Nov 4, 2009

How is it that there is not a line all the time to climb this thing?

Stellar sustained climbing with good pro, 4 bolts, set of TCU's, a #1 & #2 camelot to a bolted anchor. The crux is from the third bolt up to the belay and I think its 5.11a to get to the cave. May 20, 2010

This thing is super good! Big pulls on positive holds, way rad. Very close to the perfect climb. Durr is right, considering how close this is to the campground it's surprising how little traffic it sees. Jan 6, 2012

+1 for an awesome thought provoking climb! Another classic j-tree .11. Feels true to the grade and protects well. Bolts are a little "loose" but in decent condition. The upper portion past the last bolt has some very interesting sequential moves that will keep you coming back to this climb. I protected the move off of the ledge with a blue tcu just above the exit on the left. Perfect fit. Mar 26, 2012
A bit grainy to be considered a true classic, but an excellent line nonetheless. Crux is definitely passing the last bolt. Dec 19, 2012

Really fun! The choss is over quick and leads into great moves. Protects well. Nov 9, 2013
