[Hide Comment] This route was super fun. Still a little dirty and has some loose rock to come off but a great addition to the Tall Cliffs. Does it really need to be a mixed route though? Making everyone carry one piece of gear up the route seems silly. Especially since the crack only takes tiny gear. I would give it at least 3 stars if it wasn't for that. Can protect that section with nuts or small cams (0.1-0.2). Oct 18, 2014

[Hide Comment] I did several routes in this area one day and this one was the best. A very nice new addition that should clean up nicely with more traffic. One or two TCU's protect the crux which makes the route totally safe and in my opinion better. Aug 6, 2016
