[Hide Comment] the rakkup app gives this route 3 stars at 'the best crag in the country'. i am pretty curious as to which north american semi-classics they are comparing this thing. lolz... Jun 6, 2017
[Hide Comment] Thanks to a party earlier this season and a bit of additional work on 30 July, 2017 the vegetation that impeded progress is gone and things have been cleaned up a bit. Some additional protection should also be available due to some cleaning of the cracks. Jul 30, 2017

[Hide Comment] Guidebook says you can use three blue TCUs. While that's probably true, you don't need three. I used one in the finger crack, along with a yellow. You'll find larger gear higher up. May 13, 2019
