Description

This climb is fun and fast, the 2nd bolt is a tough one to clip.
Pain does sometimes equal pleasure.

Protection

6QD's for 4 bolts and two chains

When I climbed the route today there was a quick link on one bolt and nothing on other other. I added a chain link to the quick link and a quick link and chain to the other bolt, so now you can easily rap or lower off of the route. The route to the left also shares these anchors, and it's easy enough to traverse over to these anchors from the route to the right.

I felt like this was the hardest and best route on the wall. You really need to look around for the holds, but it's a fun little climb. Apr 16, 2012
I just did these three routes for the third time and agree that they're all a titch more difficult than 5.9. I think 10.a is fair. A nice area for sun exposure on cool mornings. Somewhat sharp but pleasurable enough. Nov 6, 2010
After careful review and some 5.10+ climbing , I do believe this climb is way harder than a simple 5.9 Jul 3, 2009
