Comments: Really liked this route Reed, nice job on the rebolting. It's not neccessary to use the starting flake.

Comments: Great movement and position, one of my favourites at the main wall,be carefully to avoid the cholla at the top.

Comments: This climb is 3 stars and deserves to be much more popular. 10 minutes from the parking lot.
Gear anchour , I took one cam each from 1/2" to 3 Inch ,#2 or #3 for the easy crack and the others for the belay.

Comments: What is going on with that route? I found the crux move on the 11 beside it more straight forward, has a hold broken at the lip? Easy except for that stopper move, maybe easier for tall people? Seemed like 10c/d to me.

Comments: I would give it three stars except for the finish, if the intent is to go straight up off the ledge after the last bolt,please add a bolt, a fall here missing the brittle edge would break an ankle. I stepped right at that point in the easier corner.

Aside from that a very good pumpy route, missed the on sight but will be back. No move harder than 11a but pumpy which may make it 11A/B, milk those rests.

Comments: Repeated this one last week, the crux is definitely 10d. A long reach from a crimp with bad feet, some foot edges may have flaked off.

Comments: I agree about the nice movement,, soft for 11a but nice sustained moves. Ive done easier and harder 11A.

Comments: Nice climbing on the lower wall, then grainy after the 4th bolt,worth doing. 2 stars out of 4

Comments: Scott must have been a tall bold climber, the crux mantle shut me down. Honest 11D.

Comments: I felt the 4 Horseman was honest at 11A and B of E S was a tad technically harder but not as substaIned. YDS ratings are for the single most hardest move on the route even if it is just a short boulder problem crux. Fun to get an easy tick

Comments: The route description should say 35 meters not 35'. Its tight to lower witha 60M rope be carefull.

One of Skaha's classic routes.
