Description 

This route is fantastic - varied between the upper and lower halves, long, interesting moves and great stemming! Nice view from the top too.

From the Rock & Ice guide published in issue #51: "Mega-classic corner with great stemming. Beware - A 165-foot [50m] rope is required to lower off this, and adjacent routes!"

Location 

Obvious corner a third of the way down the carriage path. Climb #33.

Protection 

9 bolts to rings.

This was my first 5.10 about six months into rock climbing. I remember that we didn't have enough draws at the time, so we just used single carabiners on the first three bolts.

This is such a good climb, I can't wait to climb it again. The bottom is often wet, but it's worth climbin thru it to get to that corner above.

Really fun climb. The bottom is often very wet and can lead to a difficult start depending on the day.

Wet in the mornings. Starts to dry out after 12. Best time to climb is around 12:30 so you get the perfect Mount of sin and shade. Also good to climb after 5pm when the shade returns and you can get a nice dry climb in without baking. This route is worth it wet or dry
