Comments: Oh come on. This climb deserves lotsa stars. It's super pumpy for beginners, super consistent at the grade, and there isn't a single thing about it that a person could find objectionable besides the fact that it could be twice as long and, thus, twice as fun. It's a fine piece of rock climbing goodness.

Comments: It's not unfun, this route, but the whole thing feels like an eliminate. Something about climbing is less fun when you're outside and asking "is this feature on?"

Comments: Mantel schmantel. Sorry, but this route is very 9'ey. It's also a pretty nice route. It's got some interesting movement, has distinct and different sections, and, contrary to the opinions voiced here, probably doesn't need any gear.

Comments: This thing is totally scummy up top in the crack that you climb the last 10 feet to the anchors. The rest of it is actually quite clean despite the appearance that you'll be ascending through shrubbery. Any pro about a 1/2" wide will work up there, but it's no fun feeling like you're standing in a garden while you might be trying to place. Yick.

Comments: This route took some work. Those holds at the crux, the left hand, two finger sloper knob and the small righty slippery crimp, do not inspire confidence, but piecing it all together was totally satisfying. The rest of the route isn't terrifically difficult, but arriving at the crux with plenty of gas in the tank seemed crucial.

Comments: This route is probably about right at 9+. IMHO, it's the move past the first bolt, which is a high step off a good right foot on granular, frictious crimps which is the crux. Stand that sucker up and you're good to go.

Also, it's listed in the guidebook as Timeless.

Comments: I found clipping the anchors on this to be the crux. It's got scattered jugs above the second bolt, but it's pumpy up to there and beyond. Pretty great route, altogether. Fun technical stuff mixed with pure burl. Looking at the pictures of folks on the crux on this climb, it clearly goes in many different ways, making it reasonable for those of all heights.

Comments: The first move isn't worse than .10a/b if you can stem your feet and make a controlled move to the horn next to the first bolt. The top section, if you follow the bolt line, feels all of .10d, however. Even clipping the anchors feels a touch tenuous.

Comments: Big moves if you're under 6 feet. Pretty fun. I was thrown off a little by the idea of using the holds underneath the bush growing after bolt 3, however.
