Low crux makes this a great mental warm-up, or a bounce-back. Juggy holds. Pockets-a-plenty. Was belaying my lady who took a huge whipper on Guerilla Drilla the week before and this helped get her head back in the game.

Gets a little slabby up top, *slightly* run out between bolts 3 and 4. As others have said, stay on the right side of the face unless you want to creep on the 5.9 next door. Oct 10, 2017

On sight as my first route for my first time to Malibu. Sometimes it's hard to find the 'right' hold on other routes, but this route is pretty straight forward with bunches of easy pockets. May 6, 2016

Between the second and third bolt I leaned out left, around the arĂȘte, to keep it at the rating (5.8). Straight up the Bolt lined seemed more stiff. Do to go to far left though because you'll be on bother route. There are anchors every 10 feet on this section of rock so it's sort of hard to tell where your are supposed to be on any given route. That said......shade is great and work left for a fun day of moderates Aug 1, 2014

Great route...one that we do often to start...then journey to the left knocking them off (routes) one at a time. BETA:on the start try and stay on the prow direct to the sidepull rather than go out to lower angle rock to the left. Mar 17, 2014

You have to love those new anchors. Many thanks to the individual that shelled out the $$ for the hardware. Jun 22, 2013
As of 9/14/12 there are no longer any cold shuts at the top. There are two rap rings. Sep 16, 2012
