A great line put up by the late Rich Bechler. Rich rated the route 5.11b.He also established "Emeperor of the North" 5.13 and "Detox" 5.12.
I think Rich knew what 5.11 was. Nov 21, 2011

Nick... I agree. Guidbook says 10d and that's dead on. Oh and Phillip Carrier rebolted it. Oct 29, 2010

Best moderate at J Falls and a nice canidate for a re-bolting. Old SMC hangers with rusty heads. Try not to fall. Hard 5.10, not 11. Oct 20, 2010
