5.10a for the tough and courteous. bring a strait head. Limestone stone holds are amazing at every scary run out crux. Don't leave booty or else the next two hop head's will share it. A good belayer/climbing partner is smart. Two 60M ropes for rappel. A stick clip is helpful unless you enjoy falling 30 feet before reaching the first bolt. This climb is runout and the possibility of a bad fall will make you pucker. A dozen quikdraws will protect you to the chains 150' feet off the deck. My opinion in this feature is rated: R

The climbing in Box Canyon can be spooky at first. Sharp rock, small footholds. But R rated? Can 12 bolts in 150'be "R" rated?

Good point, Dave. Sure, you'll forfeit some skin if you fall at several places on this route (like many slab routes), but an R rating implies the possibility of significant injury or death.

The day I climbed this it felt a little stretched out. Yes, it was my first time climbing in Box Canyon. If I make it back to this area and climb it again. I may have another opinion about it and change my consensus. Until then Im not going to change my mind how I felt about it. Anyway, I nutted up and led the thing. The two pieces of booty I scored is certainly not any indication that others may have felt it a bit run out and bailed, eh? I'm still using the booty to this day. Maybe that's how folks in the area complete there rack, idunno. Great climb, go get after it! Have fun and be safe!
