This climb does not get much traffic, but is worth doing especially if it gets cleaned up. The last 20 feet are what make the climb with a mildly overhanging dihedral forming the crux and making for some great exposure! As of now, there is a massive loose flake that provided the underclings from which one could move into the crux diehedral. This flake could come off at any time and would crush the climber who commits her full body weight to the double underclings. The belayer, also, is in the fall line of this flake. The climb can be done without the flake at a full grade harder (5.9). Aug 29, 2011

I'll 2nd the comment above about loose rock and avoiding it. Great warm up climb for nearby routes Aug 20, 2012
