The crux is between the first and second bolt, one tricky move. Butt bombs onto rocks/tree roots are possible. After the second bolt, great cruising on jugs. When you get to the big hueco stay to the right of it.


To the right of Somn Somn.


8 bolts, rap hangers.

Climbed this in Late April '13, seemed harder to me then the line to the left of it. The first 2 bolts are kinda sketchy with a bouldery start, wondering if a few key holds broke off. Oct 10, 2013

A good tip I learned was to aim for the tree to the right of the anchors as you approach the top, and then move left to the anchors. Aug 15, 2011

Fantastic 5.9 lead. Pulling through first bolt isn't to bad. Nice holds to second. Enjoyable all the way to the top! A must do classic! Jul 2, 2011

The lower portion (first 40 feet) of this climb was fun 5.9+ climbing. However IMHO the 5.7 scramble to the hangers was very sketchy. There were dozens of broken off holds at the bottom of the climb plus many of the holds at the very top were hollow. Belayers beware. Because of that I don't think this climb is worth it. Jun 5, 2009

A favorite at P-Rocks. Nice sustained route. 9+ for sure, but as for the pg-13 rating I don't think so. Second bolt is where it should be with some nice holds to use to get it. Jul 10, 2008
