Great route for beginner's on trad. There is a ton of really bomber pro available...you can definitely stitch this one up tight if you're feeling shaky. Fun roof to pull up near the top. You really only need a set of nuts, a few slings, and draws to protect this route, although there were a few spots that will take #1-3 cams. Awesome route! Mar 22, 2015
Always harder than I remember it being, usually just do it for old time's sake while I'm here. Fun route for anyone, really. Mar 13, 2013

Very Cool route, think its tougher tan a 5.7, but still a very cool route. Dec 31, 2012

Doesn't feel like 5.7 when you exclude the X'ed out blocks. Last climb of the day, nice surprise at the end. Feb 28, 2012
FWIW - The hollow blocks below the last bolt are still there, but seemed sketchy. Without those, the moves are less than fun (I led it but relied on the belayer a bit much and mantled over to the ledge - ugly!). Nov 21, 2010

Fun climb to "go nuts" on. Ditch the cams! A set of stoppers is all you need for a light and enjoyable trad climb at South Clear.

The hollow flake at the top seems to be very near the point of breaking off, although I'm told its been that way for a few years. Ensure your belayer has a helmet on and is very attentive during the last few moves. Apr 4, 2010

hollow blocks before last bolt actually seem solid. be mindful, as they do flex when weighted. without these holds, the moves seem unlikely Oct 8, 2008
