So much fun! Better than the average Vantage climb IMO. 3.5 stars and rounding up. Apr 29, 2014

this is one of the best 5.9 cracks at Vantage. A good lead for 5.9 leaders, but I hesitate to say good for new leaders because most trad leading at Vantage is a little sketchy and this is not as straight forward as a splitter crack. Double cams #2,3 and #4 camalot and also hex's can be useful. This is shorter but harder then Crossing the threshold. May 15, 2014

I LOVED this climb...90 feet of enjoyable movement with bomber gear (bring extra if 5.9 is your limit) #stellarStemming #joyfuljamming Apr 27, 2016

a very contrived but super fun variation is to climb the left crack using only the crack for handholds, baggy fingers to fists, probably around 10b. Jan 2, 2019
