|Climbed this route today. It is a great pitch, 35 meters of sustained and varied climbing. The crux layback/crack protects well, although a bit spicy going to a tremendous jug. The face climbing above is very fun but keeps you thinking. Dont overlook this variation because of the 5.8 approach pitches. Both my partner and myself were impressed with all the sweet finger locks (5.8 finger locks?!)leading to it.|

Lead it again today. The stuck 0.5 camalot has been there for years, and I suspect it'll be there for a long time to come given the limited traffic the route gets. I was able to place orange mastercam (same size as 0.5 camalot) to the left to back up the fixed piece.
Great pitch, possibly my favorite 5.10 pitch at Rock Springs.
