Fun route. 5.8 until the spicy finish on lead.
The crack can be climbed in so many different ways, you can do it several times in a row and not do the same climb twice! Feb 18, 2014

So much fun, and really varied with a sting in the tail. - thanks for cleaning it up so well.

One of our favorite 5.9 sport climbs in the Upper. Excellent work! Oct 17, 2014

Fun route that changes its character and mood over the last 3-4 bolts. Very balancy and some airy awkward mantles near the top for the grade of 5.9. Beware if your a 5.9 face climber, cuz the top has a very yosemite feel to it. Fun. Couple spots to be careful of ledge fall. Thanks for the route. Feb 8, 2015

It was fun but I thought it was soft for 5.9. Good warm up. Feb 8, 2015

Given all the other comments, I must have missed something at the top crux, because it felt like solid 10a. May 18, 2017

Have your belayer wear a helmet on this - There were some looser sections, one of which released a 2" rock for me. Oct 17, 2017
