If this is the route Im thinking about its actually not that bad, Id give it 2 stars for sure and say its defiantly worth tieing in for. May 2, 2011

No offense but, why not bolt the route smack in the middle of sport climbing area? It adds some variety, helps distribute crowds and offers another warm-up. One star is defined as "OK" and I've climbed many enjoyable one-star routes. If the FA folks have the time, energy and hardware, I believe it's a fine idea. May 3, 2011
None taken. I just wonder how we can complain about human impact at the tower and yet we keep bolting and posting routes. You can not have it both ways. May 3, 2011

Were it not for slightly subpar rock quality, this would be a 3-star route in my book. An X-marked hold in the lower section and a little gritty in the upper; a little clean-up could help. Not as "pure" as Sleeping Beauty, but very interesting and varied climbing; definitely under-rated and as good as anything on this wall climbing-wise. May 30, 2016
