Comments: Locker,
Wow, a blast from the past.
I just think there are better 5.2 cracks around. I agree with you though, you can sew this thing up.

Comments: First time I led this, I didn't use a stick clip. I led again this past weekend, and had no problems using the stick clip. I can't afford any more injuries.

Comments: with all due respect to Brutus, this climb is not 5.7. the friction is good, but somewhat friable is places.

Comments: I agree, a little stiff for a nine.
a bit crumbly, and may get harder if the few key holds break off.

Comments: the trail description in the Supertopo guide is wrong. the carabiner posts no longer exist, except for the one at the route beginning.

Comments: followed Tony Yeary up this route(thanks Tony).
start is intimidating, but not hard.
crux for me is the leftward traverse move off the flake,
did not think it's 10a, 5.9+

Comments: I've climbed this route three times, and have led it twice. the most recent was on November 18th. It was hot and greasy. I believe under those conditions the route is 5.7+
