[Hide Comment] wow amazing route on nice and steep rock, could use a tiny bit more traffic on certain spots but the rest is stellar, and the climb is actually 4 pitches if you don't link pitch 2 and 3 wich would be easily doable. I highly recommand it! Feb 27, 2013

[Hide Comment] A pretty decent route, specially pitch 2-3 linkup. This whole route could probably be climbed very safely with a third of the bolts placed in it and a single regular rack. Jan 6, 2016
