This line is a tad chossy. Both my partner and I pulled off some pretty good chunks on each of our ascents. Still a great climb. Jun 22, 2014

Agreed on the Choss. There is some very fun thin edging at the top, but its very easy and at times necessary to pull on holds that look like they're held in by dirt and moss. Aug 4, 2014

Led this at the end of 2015 and didn't find the route to be chossy. Great face climbing and edging. May 11, 2016

This is a good climb. If it cleans up more it could become a great climb. Two different types of climbing put into one long line, with a thoughtful thin crux to top things off. It is still chossy and a little mossy through the first half. I pulled off a couple small pieces. But it wasn't bad, and my guess is it's been cleaning up slowly since the above comments 2 years ago. With close attention you can avoid pulling on anything that would come off. Jul 4, 2016

Super fun until the final crux, kinda out of style with the rest of the climb. Sandbagged for 5.10c. Everything felt solid on the day we did it. May 17, 2018

Super fun route, long, varied and sustained. Not having climbed other routes in the area it would be hard for me to put in context, but the top edging portion seems to me harder than 10c. 5.10+ would seem vague enough but more appropriate. Jun 19, 2018
