really fun route up an appealing line at the left side of the tower. didn't think the crux was down low, where getting to the 2nd bold was pretty blank, but up higher where it was at least vertical with small dirty crimpers. Great finish crux but it doesn't let you relax anywhere Mar 11, 2013
Definitely a 12c or higher. The first few bolts at the bottom slab sections are a bit run out, but if you find the great side pulls, I don't think it's any harder than a 11d or 12a. There is a pretty decent rest after the 3rd bolt, I believe, and then a fairly lengthy crux for at least 2 bolts if not more. Great holds at the top, so you don't have to worry about bombing off while you are clipping. I would climb this when the humidity is low, but that goes for most routes in Jackson Falls. Great route overall! Mar 17, 2015
This is one of my favorites! The slab section is very fun and there are some long committing moves. The crimps are worse on this then it's neighbor route to the right. Apr 8, 2016
