judging by the small amount of rope left when rapping with a 70, i would estimate that this route is closer to 110 feet or so. the route is very interesting as you are continually climbing a series of small pillars, some of which vibrate substantially when you pound them. it seemed like the kind of route where a gorilla tugging beginner could get an unfortunate surprise.

to find the route, when you get to the top of the approach trai head up and slightly right through some minor ledges that naturally lead you to a nice belay spot. you can't miss the route as they are the only bolts in the area.

There is a second pitch to this route. It is 2 bolts plus Trad up to 2 inches. The second set of chains are about 30 feet above the first set. They do not get much use.

The first pitch was very fun, but I would not rate it as high as 5.8. More like the 5.6 climbs of Goose Egg Mountain. The second pitch is a solid 5.8, though, and may be why this is rated as such.
