|Good hard climb for beginners. If using bolts up top, be aware that when climbing this face, a fall will swing you quite a bit.|

|The PK guide gives this route a "G" rating, but I have to agree with the "R" rating. I remember it was very thin, and thinking that there wasn't much that was going to keep me off the ground if I fell.|

|Good jughaul for a few moves off the ground, then nice balancy moves the rest of the way. Using double side pulls midway up to ascend the route qualifies it for a soft 5.7 rating, and if not then for the overhanging, bouldery starting moves. Definitely not a 5.6|

i call it PG.
after the starting moves theres a bd .75 from an almost hands free stance.
there's a .4 above that.
then theres a #2 out left you can extend.
then you're at the top and the bolts are right there.
you can set up TR anchors in such a way as to hit this pitch and the "5.9" on the arete (felt like easy 5.7) then flip the anchor sling over and it's positioned perfectly for "sac's fifth avenue" 5.11 on the adjacent face.
