|Great route! I have to admit I am glad I was topping it, going over the last bolt is nerve racking. Well worth the climb though. As an added bonus on your way down have your belayer stop you 3/4 of the way down and just take a moment to soak in some of the best scenery around while the waves crash below you.|

|Not nearly as fun as it's hyped up to be. Actually quite terrifying, especially if you have to lead it on a soaking wet rope. Also a bit runout after the 3rd (and last) bolt to the anchor. However, at least the brand new glue-ins are super safe thanks to Jimi's rebolting efforts!|

|Loved this route. It's true that it's a bit hairy above the 3rd bolt, but only b/c it's sandstone: jugs abound and the stance for anchor clipping is solid. Pulling out of the chimney with the waves crashing below is absolutely amazing... at least, in retrospect it's amazing.|

|Epic! 5.9 if you're a trad climber. 5.11 if you're a boulderer.|

Best route I have done at Salt Point!
The 10a grading is accurate. This route has multiple cruxes and is quite sustained.
I took a few cams and slings, placed one in the corner below the roof and extended it with three slings.
It is quite a heady lead not because the pro is bad or runout but the exposure climbing through the roof is incredible.

|Other than the center glue in at the anchor, The bolts up top are not very trust worthy. Hanging belay on two spinners in gritty.....I stepped over Left and up to the 2 SMC bolts and a better stance.|

|The Bay Area Rock guidebook has it at 10c. I consistently onsite 11a, but struggled figuring out the sequence for this one. Even after sending it several times, there's no way I'd give it 10a. 10c at a minimum. But it is a great climb!|
