[Hide Comment] 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

[Hide Comment] Four stars? Like....right up there with the very best of the best routes on Tahquitz? Oct 3, 2011

[Hide Comment] 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
[Hide Comment] 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
[Hide Comment] 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
[Hide Comment] First ascent was by Charles Cole, not sure of the exact date. Aug 26, 2018
