Did this last week..we liked it.. Feb 7, 2016
A bunch of us took turns leading this climb. Thanks for setting it up. I'm surprised this was setup so recently given the easy access to the area.

Perhaps one of the best routes in Joshua Tree at its grade. Reasonably well protected, clean rock & easy access make this well worth doing Mar 21, 2016

Led this with a big black Chuckwalla staring at me the whole time. I hope he didn't see me pulling on the last quickdraw to get past the crux. I had my belayer walk the rope over to Gargoyle so we could toprope it. Mar 30, 2017

We found this route quick and more on par with 5.5. Actually, I did it in my approach shoes ;-) Nice friction and a few good moves! Dec 17, 2017

A nice friendly-bolted slab climb, what a fun change of pace. And I would say well suited to the area with beginners also looking to try Gargoyle just around the corner. Nov 18, 2018
