Yesterday, Herb Crimp and I did what we believe is the probable first free ascent of this route. The rock is not always the most desirable, and the climbing clocks in at a somewhat-burly .10+, but it is a fun adventure route to the top of an amazing formation. Expect some loose and sometimes crumbly rock, along with occasionally-dubious protection. We found a single set in the small sizes, down to green alien, along with doubles of everything else, triples of #3 and #4 Camalot, and a single #5 and #6 to be ideal. Jul 30, 2017
