Comments: The 2 ledges make this a sketchy lead. Good climb on TR, but not worth it to me to ever climb again. The weird moves are right at ledge-decking potential.

Comments: Wow. So much bullshit on this comment list. This is one of my FAVORITE climbs in Avalon. Yes, it may not need bolts, or that many-but some of us do not trad climb, nor do some of us think that it is worth the risk to us (a personal decision).

I think there is lotsa different beta for this route.

Comments: I LOVE this route! The movement is great, very techy, which limits having to actually pull very hard on the many two finger pockets. You'll be pumped out for the last crux moves. Good small ledge rest halfway up. All falls are safe.

Comments: Be wary of the 3rd bolt. High possibility of decking trying to clip it.
