We did this today after climbing El Camino Real. Big time fun. Crux is between bolts 3 and 4. Pulling the roof is magic. I rate it 11b/c. 4 stars. Oct 3, 2011

I haven't done it...just posted it here to get any info for the next guidebook. I'll take natebloser's word on the rating. Anyone else done it? Looks like a good pitch.

Anyone know the name of the route or who did the FA? It's been there for probably at least ten years! Oct 4, 2011

Climbed this again after several years. I think Bob is right. Not really 4 stars. The line is short and the rock quality is not perfect. Still some cool moves and worth doing. Jun 24, 2014

Tough Crux moves, juggy roof was awesome. I added some quicklinks to the anchor for lowering/rap.

Also, did this from the El Camino Anchors, up a short flake system, then a tricky traverse right to intersect with Jensens and to the first bolt. Aug 26, 2018
