Not a badass. Just bad beta from my partner "reading" the guidebook. May 9, 2017

This is really a good route, some mantles, some friction smears, thin edging, down sloping hands, side pulls. Upper section is sustained. Do this route if you're in the area.

Andy is a badass, I wouldn't want to lead this thing without some gear. I was happy with 3 cams to tame the runout. Micro to tight fingers only. Oct 24, 2016

agreed it is quality, and fun to climb as one pitch. I used a few very small cams to #.5, the #2 can be placed at a somewhat worrisome flake, but smaller gear works too. Some tiny slippery holds near the top, would be much harder if hot and sweaty. May 31, 2016

This is a great sustained slab line with cool rock and cruxes that keep on coming right to the end. It's a little more exciting (but still reasonable) if you cast off without the supplemental gear. No problem combining "pitches" (and rapping off) with a 60m. Nov 10, 2009
