Nice route for teaching multi-pitch leading, etc. Good gear supplemented by bolts. Last pitch will be much less stressful for the 5.7 leader with a #4 Camalot. A bit brushy on the second pitch, but will clean up with traffic. Thank you Josh and Amos for taking the time to put this in. Jun 14, 2008

We rapped from the bolts at the top of first pitch, while descending Brainstorm, then TR'ed P1. I found it dirty, with loose rock on the ledges. Aug 9, 2009
