Comments: Well-protectable, but kinda-generic 5.9 hand crack, to a couple sting-in-the-tail 5.10 moves. Worth a go if you're in the area and looking to climb at the grade.

Comments: A pair of friends and I skied up & down this on a perfect bluebird day in April after a spring snow. One of my best days in the mountains.

Comments: I'm fairly tall, and I felt (as strange as this sounds) that it was easier to start this from a sit and throw for the high RH sidepull.

Comments: Steve,

Thanks for your blessing on this - the Wisconsin climbing community will benefit greatly. I think with the addition of the bolts, this is destined to become a classic.

Hopefully the bolts will give modern-day climbers the opportunity to contemplate what was a bold, impressive ascent.

Cheers,
James

Comments: I think this is one of the best routes I have done in the RRG. I found it well-bolted, engaging and fun. Don't miss this one if you're at Pebble Beach and climb the grade.

Comments: Tight hands down low. This might feel a little harder than 5.7 if you've got big paws.

Comments: Admittedly, I changed the route description (and cleaned up some no longer relevant comments) to describe the route's current state. I didn't think you'd mind Nick - I apologize if my assumption was wrong. I thought about reassigning the route to me - but I felt you deserved the to keep the credit for the original contribution. Let me know if you think my solution warrants editing.

For what it's worth, I had a chanc... more >>

Comments: Ha!

Joel,

They can't all be four stars, and compared to adjacent routes, this is the last 5.8 I'd climb.

Comments: This would make a great final to pitch to a wintry ascent of Great Ridge. Felt very alpine-esque.

Comments: I move that the description of this route is the first MP description fully-plagiarized from Jay's new guidebook.

Comments: I think the shift from thuggish offwidthing and weird pedestal humping, to steep face climbing throws people for a loop. I think the thing protects well (sling the block!), but the move off the pedestal is disconcerting for sure.

Comments: Lots of hollow rock on this thing, and several of the bolts are in what I'd call questionable rock. Have your head on tight for this one if it's at your limit.
