Another steep start on big holds. After the first bolt move up and left pulling though a bulge (crux). After this the route tones down getting easier as you go.(5.6ish)


Just right of Caribou Barbie. Shares its first and last bolts with Beckerheads.

Maybe we weren't used to this type of rock, but we found this climb to be incredibly steep for the rating. The crux isn't too bad (though definitely harder than a 5.8), but the so-called 5.6ish after that is BS. Felt like a 5.10a climb. Other than the sandbagged rating, not a bad climb. You can also setup a toprope for Beckerheads or take a small traverse to setup a toprope for Caribou Barbie if you're nervous about leading them. Sep 4, 2018
