Good moderate consistent climb of ~85ft. 60m rope covers it. The crux is probably the first move as you look for hand holds. That's probably why the first bolt is low - Giggling Marlin is right of KGB 5.10a and left of Bunny slope 5.8. Acnhors are 2 bolts with chains. Nov 24, 2009

I agree that the crux is around the first bolt (a few others thought 2nd to last bolt, maybe a height thing?)...cruiser after that. Fun route. Apr 5, 2014

Very enjoyable long 5.9 with multiple cruxy sections with easy stuff in between. Next time I do it, or if I was recommending to someone, I'd bring a 1-2" cam for the short runout in the corner feature. Nov 23, 2015

Added ClimbTech "Top Anchor Hooks" to this yesterday for easy lowering. It'd be great if people would still TR through their own draws and just lower on these. Dec 29, 2017
