Comments: I recommend bringing a large cam (#4/5 C4 or comparable) to protect the traverse. And slings to minimize drag with the zig-zag the route requires.

Comments: fun lead, more balance-y than I expected. Great views, by a stream, very enjoyable route.

Comments: Curious how many splitboarders/groups have done this in spring (snow) conditions. Not really sure if this is a dumb question or a thing splitters haven't really thought of.

Comments: ^ +1. IME topo is great. First time i climbed there another group had it. Last time I had it and another group needed beta.

Love this wall.. the wall is reasonably clean with consistent grade and a lot of fun to climb.. flakes, pockets, jugs, monos, the whole range. Still need to be careful on belay for choss but you should be paying attention anyway.

Comments: There are some big sections.. having 3 #4s was very helpful... and I tugged on a cam once. So maybe not so much of a flash ;)

Comments: 60m 10.1mm rope was just long enough to not require down climbing

Comments: sustained, makes you plan your rest well. Very enjoyable lead, well protected and good feet at the anchors. Plus you have an amazing view..

Comments: 10- or 9+, nice pull near the top that makes you think about foot placement. Really cool layback section under the crux and a good mix of holds.

all the routes on this wall are bolted very well for beginning leaders.. nice work

Comments: great, consistent route with a couple fun steep sections. Good rest spots mixed in to let you shake out between the steeper stuff.

Comments: tough start and it keeps you thinking despite being slabby. Cool mix of holds from the occasional jug to tiny tiny pockets.

Comments: Good route to practice leading. The route seems to be pretty clean now, no issues with loose rock or too much dirt. Lots of holds and solid feet. Seemed like a 5.8+/5.9-, a few sections you have to pull through with high feet.

Comments: well bolted, fun route. Great holds/feet to the bulge, little thin above. Very fun route

Comments: I really like the traverse 3/4 up to the jug. Interesting twist for a route of this grade. Nice route!

Comments: A little on the pumpy side, though that could be b/c it was a first climb for me on the route. Lots of good hands and feet, great views. Rock is a bit unstable immediately above chains chains to left fyi.

Comments: 5.8+ due to the slippery start. After that it's much more manageable. Enjoyable route with a lot of options.
