This route is better than it looks from the ground, as long as you don't mind a touch of choss. The rock is more solid than it appears, but the rating of 5.9 is a bit inflated. It felt more like a low 5.8 or maybe even a high 5.7 to most in our party. Then again, we started via the ramp to the left, which certainly makes it easier than trying to do the direct start.

This is the second route in from the far right-hand side of the crag. It [does not] share a set of anchors with Warrior's Cry, which is to its right.

Per Nicholas Webb: it has its own anchors.


Draws 6-ish, not including anchors. There are chains at the top.

Fun route, I agree that it feels easier than 5.9. Warrior's Cry next to it felt harder and at its grade. Also, Warrior's Cry has its own anchors, it doesn't share anchors with this route as stated above. Jul 15, 2013

I think this is a 9. The little corner part was tricky, and between the last bolt and the anchor was also a crux. Fun though, and well-protected! Sep 8, 2017
