A right variation follows a crack to the Glamdring anchor. Bring a .75 cam if you want to protect this. I think a smaller cam will work too. The variation goes at a grade much easier than the 10a start of Karmic Relief. Dec 5, 2007

This is the softest 10a I've ever done. Crux is at the start, get on it and have some fun. Also the variation is not nearly as aesthetic as the bolted route imo. May 2, 2009

I agree, this is the easiest 5.10 I have ever been on. More like a 5.9. But regardless it is a good climb with a tricky beginning. May 3, 2011

As of August 27th, 2012, there is a large chest size boulder near the top that is coming loose. This boulder has a flake handhold that many may want to grab to pull themselves up over the ledge. Do not pull on this flake! There are other holds to grab. . . . Other than that great route. :) Be safe! Aug 28, 2012
