Comments: Climbed this great route this week. With regard to the above comment, the last 2 bolts plus the anchors are now great looking glue-ins. Lead with confidence!

Comments: After the crack, instead of traversing over to the tree, my guide only had me traverse a foot or two then go straight up through some 10a moves to an anchor a little higher than the tree. I really enjoyed this variation - worked great for me as a gym climber who needed to learn on an easy crack but wanted some tougher face movement.

Alternatively, between the gully and the crack this was essentially a straight up line about 9+.

Comments: Easy access to anchors by leading My Precious. This route was a huge hit with some beginner climbers. Even though it's TR only, you have rock in almost every direction, so we had them wear helmets. It was a good call because the helmet took more than a few hits.
