i actually did climb it i forgot because i aided it.... um yes some tricky gear for sure especially at the second crux pulling into the hand crack. first piton should be a shiny new bolt! Sep 29, 2011

This really is a worthy pitch. I led it around '97 and it was dirty but doable. Great crack climbing with tricky gear, as I remember.

It's a nice complement to Lumberjack Crack. Sep 24, 2011

This is a great pitch that a quick scrub would do it some good.
One of the first new routes I ever did and what a fun day with both Rich and Mark.
Sadly, Rich passed away last year way before his time. Sep 22, 2011
Matt did you climb this? Ive been to the base but it was super dirty. I do believe a cleaning is in order. Sep 19, 2011
