Description

Begin just left of Banquet. You may need to stick clip the first bolt if you're under 6 ft. The initial section is the crux, and very height dependent. If you're under about 6 feet tall it may shut you down. After that, fun moves on steep flakes lead to the top.

Protection

5 bolts to a 2-bolt belay/rap anchor.

I was wondering about this thing. At 5'4" I was scared clipping the first bolt for sure. Jan 4, 2009

Fun climbing in cold weather. Well protected. Tough first clip if under 6ft. Mar 10, 2009

To echo what others have said, clipping the 1st bolt can be challenging if under 6' - I had to jump to clip the bolt which took a number of tries; a stick clip or stiff draw would have made it much easier.

The route itself involves engaging movement on suspect features which will no doubt clean up with more traffic. The last bolt seems somewhat forced especially as you end up in the crack at the end. One star out of five, more if it cleans up. Dec 20, 2009

Todd Gordon showed up and gave us some beta for this route as we were setting up to climb. Spot two hand holds and jump on to the wall (if you or someone you are with is around 6' the first bolt can be clipped from the boulder). The crux is low consisting of delicate moves. This was a fun first lead of J-Tree. Dec 23, 2012

direct start up the base face off horn-ish rail, without using low backwall or jumping across from the top of that. felt about 5.10b/c starting that way, tenuous Dec 30, 2012

Hold broke on me near the first bolt. Near the third bolt there is a really loose flake that is going to come off soon. Don't use it!!! May 19, 2013

Not only was the first move reachy, but I felt the route was overall a reach fest. And ya, many loose and crumbly areas, be aware. Feb 3, 2014

Start seemed straight forward. Upper part keeps your attention pulling past hollow flakes. Nov 3, 2014

The first bolt was too high for me and I'm 6'4". Crux is down low as well, and the flake at the top is about ready to pop off. Jan 3, 2016
