Choss on top of more choss. I'd say he should of cleaned it better, but then there would be no climb. Mar 25, 2012

Is there really the need for the + rating nowadays? I did find the climb very enjoyable though, needs a little cleaning. Oct 15, 2012

Make sure your belayer is wearing a helmet and using a gri-gri! Sep 29, 2013

In the almost 6 years of this routes existence, it has in fact cleaned up- with the passage of ascentionists- to the point that it no longer is a "deadly bomb" but is actually quite fun and safe. A 60 meter rope will- on rappel- stretch to the point that the ends are slightly below the 2nd bolt allowing a pretty easy and secure 3rd class descent. As long as one is comfortable with this caveat, it can be done. Apr 13, 2016

Our son knocked a 5 lb rock off one of the ledges 80' up that landed 4' next to my wife. I think the upper section still needs cleaning.
I can't believe anyone can do this route with a 60m rope. A month ago, I watched a couple of people use a 70m rope and when the leader came down and untied both ends ended up 2m above ground (once the rope stretch reset).
I would recommend using an 80m rope for this route. Apr 21, 2017

Many "70 M ropes" get a bit shorter with washing, some are shorter right out of the store. Be really careful with rope ends on this one. We needed to untie and do a bit of easy downclimbing on this one. Oct 12, 2017
