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: 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.

Comments: As it was completely soaked on the bottom I aided the crux move to traverse left and it was a mellow 5.10A A0. With one aid move you do not get muddy and manky and it made the climb much more pleasant for me. Much mellower and actually more fun than doing the 11ish move.

Comments: I checked it out as I was lowered from Rock Du Jours, it looks very, very hard, anyone tried it lately? It could be the new 5.15 at Rumney, just to get the stoke going ;)

Comments: I thought the gear was tricky from the undercling large crack to the roof - so the PG-13 rating is appropriate though for a different section. I had to hang so I don't know what the right 5.9+ beta is, but it felt harder for me. It's hard to protect the move well. The upper part I had no problem with as I did it before for Goofer's Roof Right route.

Comments: Gotta do the arete move! It's a 1 move wonder but it's soooo good and airy. The pro is right at the move and you can double or triple up if you don't feel so secure about the move and the slab beneath it. The arete move puts the 2nd pitch into 5.7 range.

Comments: If feels like the block at the bottom of the left facing corner may be a little loose. It may last a few more years but I'm not sure. Be gentle with it and I think placing any pro using the block may only be mental.
