This is a great route deserving of at least 3 stars in my opinion. It is one of the best well protected moderates at quartz with lots of quality climbing and an awesome belay perch midway. It felt solid at 5.8 but it's been a while. A variation traverses left under the roof at the top of the second pitch and pulls up an "overhanging handcrack" to top out. The variation probably makes the route a bit harder. Feb 27, 2014

I didn't care too much for this route. Given the book's high praise, I figured it was going to be a better climb. There was a major crux (at least 5.10) where the crack ends. Maybe I climbed too high, but I remember basically hand-foot matching an undercling, committing, finding a mono pocket, recommitting and rocking up into a handjam undercling. Don't get me wrong, it was a great move, but certainly nowhere in the 5.8 range. The belay hole for the first pitch was interesting. The only part of this climb I thought was classic was the super short and easy slab splitter crack on the second pitch. Mar 20, 2016
