[Hide Comment] Quality movement at the grade. Only gets one star in the book, but deserving of many more. The only thing working against it is the length. If it were 40 to 60 feet longer it would be constantly busy. That said - climb it. You will enjoy it. Jul 16, 2018

[Hide Comment] Is there a trail that leads to the top of the cliff to set up a top rope or did you lead another route prior to setting your top rope on this route? Oct 31, 2019
