An excellent outing for the grade, offering up some grade A overhanging enduro climbing. Really fun movement and great holds.


First route left of the beautiful arete (Evergreen Arete) that divides the east and north faces of the Cube. Features two closely spaced bolts down low, the first one being within arm's reach when standing on the ground.


Six bolts, 2 bolt anchor on top.

Great route. 12- seemed fair. Definite boulder-lunge crux that belied the idea that this is a power-endurance route. Aug 11, 2017

12a. Super fun line. I really can't see how someone could give it a bomb. Sep 18, 2016

The clipping hold for the fourth bolt broke sometime this summer. This section is now the crux and the route's a few letter grades harder. Sep 6, 2016

Hey gordwah.... if you're going to give a route a bomb rating, at least make a comment or two regarding why the route is so awful! Otherwise it looks like you just got your feelings hurt because the route was harder than you though it would be.

For what it's worth, I felt the route was spot-on at 12a, even on par with the grade at other areas (Tensleep, Lander, Natural Bridge, etc...) Jun 3, 2013

Every area is different, if you tried to normalize grades globally it might be 12c. When you look at the other routes on the Cube though and then expand that to the rest of Bozeman this fits nicely at 12a.

Sandbagging is just ingrained in the culture here unlike say Ten Sleep or Joe's Valley where everyone agrees the grades are a little soft. Jun 2, 2013

Sandbag all the routes are sandbagged more like 12c Jun 29, 2012
