Loose, scary, commiting, complex route finding, especially down low. The FA's are insane people. My first time doing this sort of climbing so maybe it's normal to be pulling coffee table blocks down in the (desert) Alpine. I enjoyed the experience once it was over. I wanted to throw up during it. On the bright side, the area is gorgeous, especially down low. Dec 2, 2017

Climbed this route with Hobo Greg. The route is loose and retreat after gaining the ridge would be scary/ hard. While the climbing isn't that great the positioning and experience is pretty sweet. This is an adventure climb and should be treated like one. Also the offwith is sweet and on good rock. Dec 2, 2017
