Did this route again yesterday, very worth doing. First pitch is great, mellow and fun! 2nd pitch keeps your attention and gets you to a nice spot high on the wall overlooking the river and the Pub. The quality of the last pitch drops off a fair bit but the position is steller and worth doing. Nov 4, 2017

The second pitch was only 6 bolts. The 3rd pitch was about 7 bolts to an anchor, and it appears that after a short run out, bolts continue to what I assume is another anchor, however we stopped at this one Jun 5, 2017

I've done this route (first two pitches) a few times now. I like to run the first two pitches together with an 80m rope. Doing so, you'll be able to lower down to the top of the giant block that is to the right of the route, but make sure your belayer is tied in before you lower - it is a rope stretcher. Excellent warm up route. P1 - 5.9, ***, P2 - 5.10c, ***, P3: 5.11b, * (Sorry, I didn't like P3). Apr 21, 2017

I am sure Dan would give it at least 3 stars. I give it 3. John Barbella was also in on the first ascent of this route. Right of Old and in the Way. Dec 20, 2016

I gave this route 2 stars but I have never done it so have no idea how many stars it deserves. I am required to give a route stars when I put it in the database. Next time I'm at Owens I will climb it and update my stars. Dec 18, 2016
