[Hide Comment] The movement on this route is fun and varied, and it'll only get better as it gets clean. The crux for me was moving from the top of the twin cracks to the perfect hand jam right above the wide section. Tread lightly through that wide part--there's still some loose stuff back there, since there were other parties beneath us, and we couldn't clean it safely. Nov 4, 2011

[Hide Comment] This route is still incredibly dirty. I had to take several times to pull out rocks, and scrub sand out of the crack. There is some dangerous loose blocks in the back of the OW pod. This route needs some serious cleaning before it will be any fun at all to climb. (It shares anchors with Catsup) Feb 22, 2016
