Kinda an odd one. 3 tightly spaced bolts low down at the crux, then some very spaced bolts albeit over easy ground (mess up climbing the 4th bolt and you will deck from 50 feet). Interesting moves up to the big ledge keep it almost enjoyable. The slab above is contrived, and to be honest it would benefit from a set of anchors below the large ledge. Nov 27, 2011

Did this yesterday up to the anchor of Gorge and Purge. There is only five bolts on this section - not seven as the guidebook indicates, so after the tightly bolted bottom expect some big runouts thru the upper two bolts. This climbing isn't hard but it isn't trivial either. Looked to be gear possibilities but as I had none I didn't pay attention to size. Oct 13, 2011
Better than the Lewis guide indicates. Crux near 2nd bolt, but the climbing above is quite good, incl. the maligned "contrived slab" of the final 40 feet.

12 bolts over 150 feet -- not for the needy. May 9, 2010
