Comments: Seems like a hard 12b! But then again I'm a weak trad climber...

Comments: It's on private property. I have permission to climb here but it's not "open" to the public.

Comments: Fun... kind of a one move wonder although I recall difficult move higher up but not as committing as the lower crux.

Comments: Amazing route! Great exposure, fun moves and perfect rock.... Felt soft for the grade.... Nothing R rated about it. You can bring gear to protect run-out leading to the first high bolt if you so desire.

Comments: The Robinson Guide says 10+.... I agree. The crux for me was the thin section right before the crux. The roof is fun! Do this route!

Comments: Must do... often overlooked because it's kind of hidden.

Comments: Not R rated... Skip the bolt and place blue/black aliens instead! This is an amazing trad testpiece at the falls.

Comments: Nick... I agree. Guidbook says 10d and that's dead on. Oh and Phillip Carrier rebolted it.

Comments: I'd say 10d is fair for small hands... this thing is great! Wish it was longer.

Comments: Great Climb! I don't think it is deserving of an R rating. I'd say maybe PG. The slab/face is way fun and this route should not be missed!

Comments: This is an awesome climb with a high scenic factor. From a protection perspective this is a serious climb not for beginner 5.9 leaders. As with other routes in the "Sups" watch out for loose rock.

Comments: IMO this is not a safe route. The feature that forms the left side of the crack sounds hollow. I would not have been comfortable at all falling on the cam I placed in the crack. The movement on the route was great and I would have enjoyed it more if that bulge did not sound so hollow.

Anyone agree?

Comments: Classic Big Wall Route. The route was first ascended by Royal Robbins. It offers a great introduction to moderate clean aid. Super steep and super fun. This route is more exposed than the South Face.

[Bring a] standard Free Rack. Bring some heads and a hammer in case the fixed heads blow.
