Great pitch! Sustained but never desperate with intriguing protection. May 31, 2011

Great finger-crack climbing, thoughtful and sustained, but never overwhelming. Takes great gear the whole way. I've only climbed at the Royal Columns once and this was my favorite route. Oct 16, 2012

Definitely one of the best routes of the area. Sustained finger jams with good ledges on the face. Crux seems to be the first 15 feet of crack - thinner jams and gear on steeper rock. Fire through it and it eases a bit the rest of the way. There are a couple of spots for hand size gear but mostly finger gear and great stoppers. Jun 16, 2017
