Originally rated 5.3X in the first edition of Watts' book, the second edition now rates this at 5.5R. While not difficult, the lower moves are awkward enough that a rating above 5.3 seems warranted. Poorly protected for trad climbing, but a good beginner route once a TR is established. For the very small or very timid, one can "cheat" a bit by starting up and left of the crack, although this would likely downgrade the route back to the 5.3 range.


Furthest left route on the North (left) side of the block (left of "How Low Can You Go"). Start in the flaring crack and work your way up.

This is a great spot to string up the kiddos on a top rope. My son (5) and daughter (3) both made it about half way up the route by starting just up and left of the true (crack) start. They could have likely finished the route if their anxiety hadn't gotten the best of them! Jun 3, 2010

When did this get bolted? I climbed it yesterday and there was a clear bolt line straddling the crack and two sets of anchors at the top. The first anchor only had one rap ring. Anyway, it makes a decent warm-up/cool-down if How Low Can You Go or Shamu are taken. I agree with the earlier comment that this would make a perfect top rope station for the kids. Jul 24, 2017
