I was belaying someone on this route for there first trad lead and well... just like the name states, his knee got stuck in the large crack on top of the route. He was struggling for a good 5 minutes trying to get it out. I felt rather sorry for the guy. Jan 10, 2009

This route is a very good lead, worthy of 3 stars IMO. A #5 camalot or friend is greatly appreciated for the last 15 feet.
