Description

I really enjoy this climb, maybe as much as any climb for it's grade in the Gorge. It is a great warm up. A few have enjoyed it almost as much, others not so much, tastes differ. Many struggle at the start getting past the first bolt as well as at the top getting past the last bolt. Getting your knee in the crack at the start helps with the bottom crux, otherwise you might find it hard for the grade. Likewise the crux at the top requires the right sequence or you may find it difficult there as well. In between, the route is loaded with great edges and fun jams. As in all the routes on this wall one must carefully scramble up to the start. Following close to the wall is the best way, though few take that advice. I like to use at least three if not 4 shoulder length slings. If nothing else extend the low first bolt. If you do not enjoy it the first time then tr a few times until it flows and maybe you will enjoy it as much as me.
