terrific route. this would be a classic anywhere. bring a bunch of #1 camalots - my partner had to do some budgeting to hold on to them. they will easily go in almost anywhere. May 2, 2017

Excellent pitch with the best rock in the VOG. If I did it again, I'd take: (1x) .4-.5, (2x) .75 (3-4x) 1 (2x) 2 (1x) 3 BD C4 sizes. 4 #1 Camalots will not go unused if that's a hard size for you. Anchors were decent looking 3/8" wedge bolts with homemade hangers (little rusty); a great community service would be adding chains (a foot or so chunks). Mar 9, 2015
Best free route I've done in the VOG and a classic by any standards. For small-handed folk, I think the grade is more like a soft 11- I had solid hand jams the entire way. Mar 9, 2015
Pretty sure they were bolts on top. They just had rusty hangers. Apr 23, 2012
