This route would be a good warm-up or tune-up for placing gear. It is fun with many options for holds and movement. Very nice courtesy clips at the top. Jun 19, 2017

The new Sloan guide calls this "Kung Fu Panda" and gives it 10a. I provide this only as information and not as an endorsement of that name or grade.

But it is a nice route: flaky stemming down low with mostly good rock followed by a nice finger and hand crack to the chains. 9+ or 10a seems reasonable by newer standards. Oct 24, 2016

Good beginning climb. My friend did her first trad lead on this route and smoked it. Dec 13, 2015

Great shady cragging area. This route warms you up with 5.8 moves and has a few well protected 5.9 moves - good lead for the 5.8 leader moving into 5.9

Thanks for the gardening! Sep 29, 2015

It's an enjoyable climb, worth the trouble of cleaning it out imo. And most importantly it's in a high-traffic area so it will actually stay clean. May 7, 2015

FA Dan Mcdevitt, 2014, 10.a. I placed both #2 camalots I had. Good warm up for area. Feb 15, 2015

I wanted to clean this crack last year. Was quite disappointed when I saw the anchor on it this Sunday. I'm glad I didn't do it. It must have been a ton of work to garden out this climb and only for a measly 5.9. It still needs some pruning as well. I wouldn't want to fall on those trees that are still sticking out of it...
