Comments: A good, very well-bolted route. Felt a little stiff for 10-. There is also a bit of exfoliation still occurring so don't be surprised if that little edge you're holding on to breaks away as you pull on it.

Comments: This is a great route. Not sure I'd put a new(ish) 5.6 leader on it, though. There's the runout last pitch, which has been mentioned, and the traverse at the end of the dihedral on the second pitch is a bit thin with the potential for a pendulum fall that could be jarring.

Comments: A really fun route, a little dirty in places but otherwise a lot of fun. I thought the bolt placement higher up added just the right amount of spice.

Comments: I thought this was a fun, casual route. Moderate climbing with a couple spots that are easy 10ish and well protected. This would be a good route for someone breaking into the 10 range in CCC.

As others have said, yard on that rail below the first bolt at your own risk. That block of rock isn't always going to be there.

And, it wouldn't be a bad idea to put a long or extended draw on the bolt just before you get to the roof. I didn't and found myself dealing with quite a bit of rope drag.

Comments: I agree with others who've posted...the crux was, for me, between the little tree ledge and the flake. Once at the flake, the moves are somewhat committing but they're much easier than the ones you just did.

Comments: I really enjoyed this route. It must've been cleaned up a lot since it was first opened. Perhaps it's one of the routes cleaned up this summer when the canyon was closed?

Down low there are definitely some inviting holds that don't appear all that reliable, but there was solid rock there for the moves. Higher up, I thought the climbing was great.

The upper dihedral felt more dynamic than the lower section, but that may've been due to the fact that I was getting pumped and moving out of despe... more >>

Comments: A really fun route. The roof was more pumpy than I anticipated and, after a little rest, the headwall continues to challenge with a steep, tricky sequence.

A couple of suggestions. First, as others have said, the lower half is really chossy, so the belayer should set up with the ability to get out of the way in case anything comes down. And, you'll save yourself some rope drag if you use long draws on the 2nd and 3rd bolts, plus you'll prevent the rope from running across the edge of the roof.... more >>
