Actually a pretty good route with decent rock quality. A 70 meter rope does not quite reach the actual ground when rappeling. The heads of the bolts are some type of huge buttonhead and unlike any I have ever seen before. A rawl spike perhaps? Nov 20, 2011

I really enjoyed this climb. Its cleaning up nicely. One of the best intermediate bolted routes in the park. For the exposure, view, and length I give it three stars. There are rap rings on quick links on top. You can not reach the ground when lowering or rapping this route with a full 70. You can lower to ledge with the bush and down-climb. You can even lower to larger ledge off to the right under Lead us not into temptation and a little easier down climb. Jan 28, 2012

Fun and casual climbing with a ton of bolts! If you enjoyed this route you must surely do "Lead us not into Temp.." and "Godsend"! Dec 11, 2012

Great moderate climb that is relatively isolated with great views. Very well protected, although it's not perfectly clean yet.

I was told I would need medium pieces to protect the beginning and this is definitely not the case. The first bolt is easily accessible and any placed trad gear would be useless as protection. Also, I would recommend using a single 70 meter rope to rap to the bush-ledge and downclimb (as stated by others). We brought up a second rope and on the rappel I noticed how well a single 70 m would have worked: You'd end on a nice wide ledge with a decent low-angle crack to downclimb for 5-7 feet. The extra rope wasn't worth hauling out there. May 3, 2015
