Great warm up for a cold day! Super fun route with great holds. If you don't like scary first moves you could bring a stick clip, but commitment is a big part of sport climbing! Do watch your belay position though. Climbs 5.5 but could be 5.6 if you began with a sit start like we did today. Nov 4, 2017

Fun route. I thought all the hand holds felt pretty solid. Oct 17, 2017

This route is not a "warmup" (except for 5.11 climbers), and it's not 5.6.

Several tricky moves, with at least one critical move relying on a small or non-positive fingerholds.

Work out very carefully the belay / protection methods required to avoid hitting a ledge or bulge if blow one of the moves in the lower half - (? bring a stick-clip ?)
. (I am not suggesting that the bolts are badly placed -- I think the problem is just the structure of the rock). Aug 24, 2014

Location is on the backside wall (west face) of the main detached block, which is the east wall of the corridor behind that block. Almost at the right / north end of that wall (by the widest easiest entrance to the corridor). May 24, 2014
