[Hide Comment] I've heard that this is the same grade as rising from the plains, whatever that may be. Nov 5, 2016

[Hide Comment] The move after the third clip will be much more difficult if you're not at least 5'8" (or have a very positive ape index). It's a nice, bouldery route, but not a great candidate for anybody short. Jul 20, 2018
