One of the best routes at Vantage for the grade which is 10c in the book. Well bolted, no gear needed.I still think it deserves the 10c, harder then a few 10d's or 11a for the crux. Mar 20, 2014

Phenomenal route. Fun dihedral climbing with a tricky sequence at the two bolt crux. Apr 27, 2014

I removed several large rocks off this near the 2nd bolt, still some loose stuff that is wedged in. 9/22/18. This is still one of my favorite routes at Vantage. Sep 23, 2018

My partner knocked out a larger-than-a-watermelon section of rock between the 1st and 2nd bolts. It came tumbling down in multiple chunks. He cleaned up some of the loose rock, and I cleaned up the remaining loose bits on my way up. It doesn't change the grade. Hanging draws from the 4th and 5th (crux) bolts is difficult from down low. The 4th is so oddly placed, you have a nice ledge but have to go up on a crimp or small foothold to set the draw (if you're short or average height). Good to have a long draw for these. At the crux, use the crack to the right of the roof block, or use alternative approach with crimpers. Then the route changes into some crack climbing with hand jams and some face crimps. Finish up in the crack or more crimps. Oct 1, 2018
