Comments: My friend who climbs V6/V7 fell at the top of this, ended up hurting his ankel and had to skip climbing the next 2 days... it is the only route I have ever seen him fall on under the grade of V5. After that noone else in our group attempted it. All the locals we talked to said they will not even attempt it without a rope.

Never made an attempt myself but based on all the routes my friend who fell on it has climbed there is no way it is a V1/V2.

Comments: We exited up it the other day didn't know it was closed. The rock is kinda questionable and I knew the gear could have broke the rock if I had fallen. If it is closed I would guess it would be due to all the questionable rock that could break.

Comments: The bolts are not within reach of the crack itself. Kinda start close than wander back to the right and ends at the top of cracking ups new anchors although you could use either set that was free.

Pretty sustained but most of the clipping stances are decent, 10c is probably pushing it I would go 10a with the crux being the start which you could really bypass depending on how to start it.

Comments: WOW, is all i can say. We left keys to the car on the ledge and were already dead tired. I figured 5.4 won't be so bad to get up there. I thought although there was no move harder than block route (which really only has a small run out at the start on thin holds, big runout on a staircase, and 1 hard move at the end), but over all it was much harder of a climb. At least the run out on block route is like walking up stairs.

This thing really could use 1 bolt about 10 ft below the big open sectio... more >>

Comments: I loved this route, get a little bit of everything in it under clings, big moves, technical small face, mantling, cracks. I felt like every 10ft or so I had to change the way i was climbing.

Comments: I was talking with a guy at miguel's and he said alot of routes like this are getting harder now because they are climbed so much that the sandstone is just wearing away.

I feel the same way about these "5.9s" They were harder than half the 10s i climbed there... i think they were harder than some 11s i climbed as well.

Comments: Grade greatly depends on where you climb the face. Far left and you run into kiss my feet and it gets easy, far on the right and it gets easy. Stay in the middle slightly left of the tree and it will be a 5.9+ / 5.10a
