My dad.


The bottom half of this route is very fun. It is located directly above the mine shaft. The crux comes between the 3rd and 4th bolt. There is a triangle-shaped rock that juts out above you, and my partner found an intermediate hold while I had to throw for the jug. Either way, it's fun.


It is directly above the mine shaft.


9 (10?) coldshuts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Fun climb. The crux would definitely be more difficult for the shorter climber. Cool start over the mine shaft!

I counted 10 bolts with the extra one being the second one on the route, most of the way through the 4th class between b1 and now b3. My wife is 5 ft and I'm 6 ft 4 in, and there was a significant difference in our experiences at the, for her, crux going over the small initial roof after b4. I found it probably 10d at most, maybe even pumpy 10c while she found it honest at the grade. Definitely height-dependent.

Being tall helped on the crux but everything before and after feels like 5.10b
