3rd route right of the tree means 4th route on the wall.

I bypassed the direct finish by climbing the gully to the left of the head wall, which significantly lowers the grade.

The stemming in the middle is great fun. Aug 20, 2011

I guess the grade is entirely from the last moves? I got on this without knowing the grade. I struggled and hung going over the last bolt, and was thinking probably 5.9, and that I just didn't unlock the correct sequence at the end. Some of the 5.8/5.9 climbers in our group climbed the final moves without a problem. I guess my point is, someone that doesn't climb 10+ probably shouldn't be scared off by the rating. Sep 19, 2011

I really enjoyed this route, its a technical 5.8 until the final bolt, which is a tough move, but you can skip it by going left or right. If you want to do the 5.8, bring a cam and go right. Or clip the bolt and go left up the chimney. Jul 2, 2013
