[Hide Comment] Although it seems steep at first, this climb is rather tame and has enormous jugs in the form of flat shelves the entire way (except for the tricky move to get off the deck).

This route should not be passed up by any 5.11 climber! Jul 20, 2012

[Hide Comment] For those curious, you need 4 draws for this route- two for the first two bolts, two for the anchor. the rest have climb tech perma-draws, making this route very easy to clean if the leader back-cleans the second bolt after clipping the 3rd. Oct 12, 2012

[Hide Comment] The ground at the start has eroded severely over the past 8 years or so. Use cheater blocks to keep the grade at .11a. The crux is now the start (stick clip highly recommended). After that, the climb is .10c/d jug haul to the top. Oct 26, 2015
[Hide Comment] This route has been recommended to me for awhile now by different people. Happy to say it lived up to the hype!! Tricky start to hero moves on steep jugs! Throw a heel, shake it out and tackle the head wall to the anchors! Take a victory whip! Jul 16, 2016

[Hide Comment] I watched a guy from Canada who has never in his life climbed anything climb this rt. We showed him how to tie a knot, gave him a basic run down of sport climbing, and then watched him send this puppy ground up! It was the most fun I ever had in my life watching anyone climb. It was so motivating. If he did it, so can you! Feb 4, 2019
