5 years ago I pulled off the critical clipping hold right under the 3rd or the 4th bolt on the slab section. I think the route was rated 5.10B in the old book.

Top of the 3rd pitch at the good ledge. You can see the last bolt before the anchor on the left. It's a traverse pitch that is technical but well protected.

From my perspective belaying the 2nd at the anchors the most obvious line is climber's right of the bolted line around the dark streak.

Comments: I'm pretty sure the upper crux has gotten easier with time. The incut for the left hand before stabbing upward certainly feels deeper than when I did it first. I think a lot of stuff got cleaned up up there. The crack to the right use to be pretty mangy :)

Comments: You can comfortably linke pitch 3 & 4 together for a 190 feet or so pitch. The crux comes at the beginning of the 3rd pitch and the rest is pretty easy climbing. The bolts are more spread apart after the crux so the leader needs to have a good lead head.

Comments: 2 5.7 moves seperately by easy climbing in between. The first one come basically at the 1st bolt.

Comments: since I'm the person who took the pic it's definitely CP right smack in the middle of the first pitch

Comments: So my personal experience is that a 70m does not rap from P4 to P3 anchors. It was close but then I didn't want to risk it so I stopped at the parking lot area and downclimbed to the p3 anchors. Not for the faint of heart and I wouldn't recommend it as it's pretty committing even though it's easy 5th. There is no way to protect the downclimb.

Comments: I would recommend this climb to anyone who wants to do more than face climbing. A number of techniques are involved and good stemming will keep the layback at the grade. I was pleasantly surprised of the 2nd layback section, it was really fun.

Comments: I think this route only need a scrub. No need for a bolt. If you can do the crack you can do the easy runout slab. It's a very nice trad climb for those who brings gear.
