This is a super route! One of the best 5.9s I've climbed anywhere. I am short (5'4") with very small hands (#1 BD cam) and bad at wide cracks, but the wide part in the beginning was not the crux for me (you can basically avoid it). Apr 25, 2014

This is one of my favorite 5.9 cracks anywhere. The wide part maybe hard if you are short and have small hands, a # 4 works or a #5 works there, good to double up with cams 2-3" if in doubt of your crack skills.I hate to be a jerk, but this is really a 5.8. Feb 25, 2014

This climb is very good and is definitely no harder than 5.9. Oct 16, 2012

I've always thought of this climb as a benchmark for the area - if its harder than Inca Roads its 5.10, if its equal to it or less its not. Apr 19, 2012
