Great route that keeps you on your toes. Good rests between technical slab sequences. Definitely worth doing! Nov 7, 2016

I had a lot of fun on this route and I hate slab climbing. It is very close to a 5.7 trad route to the left and I think the lines for these two climbs intersect for at least a move or two... or maybe I was off route. I never felt off route anyways and there were plenty of hard slab moves I still had to do.

Also, we were avoiding a death centipede while climbing this. My friend swears it had fangs, so lookout. Sep 30, 2012

Great slab climb that is very atypical of the Red. Crux is at the top! Very fun and worth doing. Apr 28, 2011
