While this climb safely protects, the placements are less obvious than other routes at the crag. Apr 12, 2010

We got on this one to end the day easy and boy was I in for a surprise. None of the moves are harder than 5.6, but the gear is less than desirable in a few places and tricky as well. Still a fun climb, but don't jump on it thinking its a total gimme (like I did, lol). Aug 16, 2010

bring a #5 and #6 and its not tricky at all, you can see from the ground where your gonna place them... Sep 26, 2013

Protection: "Trad" is insufficient. As noted above, you will want #5 and # 6 to safely protect the beached whale section. The placements are not difficult if you bring the correct gear. Nov 4, 2013

WARNING: There is a pretty big wasp nest inside the beginning of the major right crack of this route. Had to bail, take caution! Apr 24, 2016

Bats and wasps bump this up a grade. Solid and fun route with some pretty committing moves. Definitely could have used a #4 and #5. A 6 might be overkill. Able to product with standard rack though Jun 5, 2017
