[Hide Comment] You have to do a small amount of climbing to set up a top rope on this. It is very exposed at the anchors too. I would not recommend a beginner setting up a top rope on this. The climb is fun, but still the holds need some brushing. Dec 13, 2012

[Hide Comment] To me, this is the hardest route on the cliff. I tried it once in bad conditions and got shut down but was able to lead Hasbeen Done in the same conditions that day. I onsighted Gneiss Lee Done, and that felt noticably easier to me. I made it up this time but had to rest a couple times after making clips. Apr 29, 2013

[Hide Comment] Stiff 10a, but the rock is so featured you are never without decent feet. The crux for me was between bolts 3 and 4 where the hands get thin. Nov 5, 2018
