[Hide Comment] some looseness on the route. Somewhat sandy. Not great gear in one section with flared hand jams.

No anchors, just tress with new slings as of summer of 2014. Sep 4, 2014

[Hide Comment] Top quality route. Great gear, varied climbing, clean rock, and even a bit of route-finding all make this one a classic in my book. As some have already mentioned, route could benefit from rap rings. Nov 7, 2017
