The first 25 feet or so of this route, where you climb a kind of buttress, is quite good. After that not so much. You traverse licheny 5.3 to 5.4. I stopped at the tat and lowered, just shy of the top. Where the line is drawn in the KB guide and on the beta photo here would probably be a lot harder than 5.8. Oct 9, 2016

I would agree with that the route in the guide book would go harder than 5.8. if you don't want to pull the roof there is fixed gear to the right below the roof, couple nuts and old webbing. we topped out through the brush.

Pulled the middle v on the roofs (where the line is drawn). I'd say 5.10 with great gear. walk across the top to the left to rap from trees with 8mm cord on them (which was in good shape in july 2017). I don't think I would rap off that webbing in brad7's picture anymore. Jul 24, 2017
