Fun little trad lead. Difficulty is fairly consistent throughout. It may be slightly easier than rated.


Obvious crack in middle of throne area. Good sized tree near base.


Nuts and smallish to medium cams, easily protected. No top anchor but you can use one nearby on the route to the right if you want to setup a top rope more easily.

Fun, easy, consistent handcrack. Would probably make a good first lead with great gear. This climb and a few others to its' left make it worthwhile to bring out a single set of cams from small to 2" and a set of nuts to Upper Devil's.

Crux is at the bottom on okay fingers to a great hand jam. Basically a one move wonder type deal for the 5.7 rating. Once you pull the first 8-10 ft the rest is cruising on bomber hand jams with decent foot placements (5.5ish, maybe 5.6 at parts)

This was a fun little route. Nice option for the new leader on gear. I think 5.7 is super soft for this route though. Especially when compared to the other 5.7's here.
