My wife and I both thought this was a great 5.8 route. It offers quite a bit of variety if you want to mix it up -- jamming, stemming, and sort of a layback up top to give your feet some friction on the rock. It's also one of the longer routes on this part of the wall. Kudos to whoever put up the bolts -- nicely done! Jan 29, 2012

I felt this was a harder climb than other 8s at Shelf. Getting past Marge is fun, the moves at the top are tricky. Jan 25, 2016

Classic for the grade! Fun, diverse climbing. This makes a great warm-up or cool down. Mar 27, 2016
