I'm glad I ignored the bad reviews. Thought it was a fun climb after the most ridiculous battles with the spiders/ webs. Definitely dirty and covered in webs but probably because it doesn't see much traffic. The entire climb is fun safe 5.6 climbing until you're at the top. I put in two small pieces right before the third small roof and worked it for six or seven attempts before I finally got it (down climbing the three feet back to the ledge before giving it another go each time). Very reachy right hand over the roof with the feet either too low or too high and the roof pushing out just enough where you cant get the left hand where it needs to be. There are two great crimps on the face but wasn't strong enough to lockoff on a crimp and reach over the roof with poor feet. Fun safe 5.6 climb with a 5.9 finish a few feet from the anchor?

Chossy, dirty, unavoidable rope drag. Not worth it, despite a few nice moves. May 2, 2010
