The description and topo are a little confusing on this one. Each pitch has 5 protection bolts, so bring 11 draws if you're going to do it in one pitch, as you'll need an extra to clip the mid-anchor. The topo shows pitch 2 with 6 protection bolts, it is wrong.

Good, Tuolumne-style friction climbing on this one. The runouts aren't too bad if you've climbed in Yosemite or Jtree. My partner and I both felt like the hardest moves were going past the 5th bolt on pitch 1.

Rap off to the right with a single 70. You'll make it, but just barely. Best to tie knots in the ends. Oct 15, 2013

I would venture to say the first pitch is easier than the second by a grade at least, maybe two? Overall a fun "adventure sport" climb. Jun 2, 2011

This is a good climb but very run out on the first pitch. The second is bolted better. It seems the route developers swung leads on the F.A. Still, not a hard climb and the runouts are on easy ground. May 22, 2011
