The crux after the first bolt is definitely easier for taller climbers. A little beta warning if you want the onsight: tall climbers can just dead point up to the good hold. Shorter climbers have to add a little left crimp and right foot bump before they can grab that jug.

Fun moves regardless. The middle is cruiser on great positive holds, then keep moving to avoid the pump on the final overhang. Sep 1, 2014

The crux is actually at the second bolt. One of my taller partners made it look easy, he called it 5.9. Me and another shorter partner thought it truly was 11a for difficulty, Nov 9, 2014

The upper half of the route is a blast. Overhanging jug fest. Nov 9, 2014

We did this on Friday, and thought it was really fun. The upper "headwall" was a nice cruise on good holds. Nice addition! Jul 6, 2015
Lowering a climber can shred the rope. A lot of sharp rock lies below the anchors. After reaching the anchor, the climber should rappel. Jul 17, 2015

Not a good choice if you are short and have any left shoulder issues.
Otherwise OK.

It is possible to lower without shredding your rope, but there are a lot of sharp edges, so BEWARE! Might be a spot where rapping is preferable, but you make sure your belayer knows what you are planning! Nov 21, 2016

This is a fun, overhanging, 5.9 jug haul (if you can reach the good hold at the second bolt). The crux is hiking down the talus slope without sending a rockslide into the horde below. Apr 23, 2017

You might kick a few small rocks loose but only if you are very careless, and nothing would go far or be big enough to hurt anyone. Dec 1, 2018
