Has to be one of the best routes in Kootenai. Believe it was Gary Pyatt that got the FA. I did this route every time I would go into Kootenai Aug 23, 2012

Incredible, airy route with sustained and unique movement. Restful, easier climbing in the middle followed by a steep crux. So good.

ROUTE CONDITION---There is a completely detached hold/block that is chalked up as people may have used it near the middle of the route. It will come off onto your belayer if it is pulled on. Should be cleaned off the route if possible May 9, 2018
