Description

The real fun of this route kicks in after you pull the tricky crux corners at the start. The climbing eases off a bit, but the route goes all the way up with fun climbing on great stone.

Location

On the left side of the crag, third class up to the first clip, the route pulls a short roof that leads into a set of corners. From there, onto the main face and up on stellar granite with killer views.

Protection

70 meter rope, 16 bolts to chains.

You can do it with a 60m but need to untie on top of boulders to the left. Jun 25, 2016

Great route. Expect the climbing to ease up (but remain interesting) after you solve the opening sequence, which I would say could be fairly rated at 5.10c. For maximum value, be sure to take a look at the scenery whenever you find yourself standing on a nice rest ledge, which happens quite a few times on the long climb to the top. Oct 16, 2015

This is a great line. The first moves, up to the third or fourth clip, are awkward: if one is not very careful about body position, they can be pumpy. But a more restful, but still tenuous, sequence is there. The upper section eases up a lot, but it's not at all boring and it is very long.

One of my favorite routes of late. Aug 25, 2014
