Some less than admirable person removed the hanger on the first bolt, so if you intend to clip it, bring a nut and hanger. Sep 28, 2015

@davelewis. You have more chops than most.

Scary and fun are both subjective descriptions for this route.

But it is, no doubt, dangerous.

Well done.

I noticed there wasn't much mentioned about this climb. I climbed it a few years back, after 2 bolts were added to protect the initial 40 or 50 ft. I found the bolts to be misleading, I was back to groundfall potential, commiting to flexing flakes, before I got my first decent piece. I would have backed off, if it wasn't for the fact that downclimbing seemed much more dangerous. A real butt puckering experience. I also think that it was not much fun, just dangerous. We also climbed it in 2 pitches, finding a comfortable belay halfway through. Jan 24, 2012
