Great route that has cleaned up since the 1990s, when it had some friable holds. One that was glue reinforced and was the clip hold for the 4th bolt. Bob used the wrong sort of glue, and after it got wet, it was useless. I pulled this hold off around 1998 and what a rude surprise as I whipped off. Luckily I wasn't clipping. Ever since, the route has been harder than 5.12a. I climbed it again in 2008, 2012, 2014, & 2015. It is solid 5.12b if not 5.12b/c. Sustained moves from the 2nd to 6th bolt. Great vertical face.

Sharp, short, and bouldery, fun sequence and worthy. Probably the best route at this crag with Midnight Express. Skip the rest of the crag. Apr 7, 2013

This is a great climb for the first 40 feet or so then becomes covered in lichen and not that enjoyable as it leads you over a few ledges to the top. I really like the lower face climbing, and I feel it negates the upper section enough to give it three stars, but I imagine not everyone would feel this way. There seems to be a great spot for an anchor about 15 feet above the crux where there is some decent 5.10 climbing that ends at a ledge. Mar 6, 2018
