This route is awesome! I don't know why it doesn't get more traffic? Classic Rushmore slabing up a beautiful arete with great exposure!! That being said, just make sure you have your head right and enjoy the ride! Oct 13, 2014

I second that Jimmy every word you said in your post is spot on. This route is superb giving the other 5.9 classics in the area a run for their money. Apr 22, 2015
