This route will improve with more traffic and possibly increase the number of stars. The rock is very solid up through the crux, but there are many yet friable edges for feet that you must be careful with. Although the crux is distinct, the climbing above still keeps you on your toes as you reach the final overhanging section. May 31, 2010

Awesome cruxy climb. It sounds like it has cleaned up well from a few years ago. Everything seems pretty solid; some of the rock on the overhang does appear to be the most inspiring but it's fine. Nov 4, 2013

Really fun movement on great pockets. I don't have a lot of basis for this, but seems like it might be a bit soft for the grade.

Update on the location-- there are two bolted lines to the left of J Rat's Back on this section of wall. Oct 27, 2014

The crux is a really big move, or more probably a dyno after the 4th bolt. If you move left, you can avoid this crux staying on big holds, perhaps reducing the grade a bit. May 5, 2015

Route has cleaned up well over the years. No friable feet or hands the whole way up. Distinct, fun, v3 crux at the 4th bolt. Excellent climbing, don't miss the no hands rest halfway for the push to the chains. Sep 28, 2015
