Nah, it's still super dirty above the first pitch. The thin crack leading up to the 10c crux is pretty cool. After that it's a lot of bushwhacking up corners. Apr 7, 2015

I did this route about three years ago. It was NOT clean then. The climbing itself was good, but the upper pitches became considerably adventurous. I'm glad it's looking better. I thought the 2nd and 3rd pitches were pretty cool and rather demanding! Mar 14, 2014

We did this and The Ahwahnee Buttress years ago and they were really good routes. I imagine they've cleaned up considerably . . . Mar 12, 2014
