Don't blow it at the top, good little fall if you do. The crux is clipping the chains. May 20, 2011

Very true about the crux. My friend had the rope under his legs and slipped at the anchor resulting in him being flipped upside down. The upside is...he had his helmet on, which probably saved him from a nasty boo-boo, but yeah, look around the top before ascending to the anchors. I found some bomber holds on the right side leading up to the anchor and it was no problem clipping. Oct 6, 2011

What a classic climb! Steep and sustained with various rest. This is an enduro burner for sure, you really need to pay attention to your rest opportunities and use them well. The pump comes quick, the crux is definitely getting settled to clip the chains. Feb 9, 2015

I was fortunate enough to watch someone get their pilot's license when they learned to fly by taking a massive whipper when they couldn't clip the chains. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, I was able to find a good clip stance and clip the anchors before I peeled off. We figured it was best to clip from the lowest possible point while you are still on that massive horn instead of climbing up higher onto thin, slopey holds. Either way, this is a fantastic route that should be on everybody's tick list. Mar 20, 2017
