This route was fun, and also very well protected. Fun slopers test your technique...if it felt hard, then you probably did it wrong! Young Doug. Aug 3, 2008

Great climb, crimps and slopers. Couple of edgy sidepulls. Oct 2, 2010

Climbed it today. Very nice route. If you're a little taller, step out a bit off the underclings and you skip the thin right, and go for the big pull. Jun 8, 2011

Fun. Good for new or 5.8 or above leaders. Well protected. It is also a good confidence builder. Very fun!! Dec 1, 2012

More consistent than its neighbor to the right. Both worthwhile climbs. Jun 21, 2015

  • ** BETA ALERT *** Don't read this if you don't want beta.

The crux on this route is definitely between bolt #2 and #3. The most obvious move is going straight up at bolt #3 using some crimpers and smeary edges, but that move is definitely 10a (probably why so many people rate it 10a or 9+). Another sequence is reach out left for a hidden sidepull from the undercling/sidepull flake, then utilize the much better footholds below the undercling to stand up and reach for a jug right under bolt #3. This move is hard to see due to the hidden sidepull, but it is reasonable for a 5.9. Jun 23, 2015

Would make a nice introduction for someone looking to lead 5.9. Aug 29, 2017

Really fun face climbing similar to the other routes on this particular section. Despite what people are calling the crux, I felt this route was quite sustained, so I can see why some give it a 10a rating. Compared to its neighbor on the right, it felt slightly easier, so I think the 9+ is solid. First time outdoor climbers will have a blast on toprope. Nov 6, 2017
