Description 

Fun and long romp. Start with a broken steep juggy face and flake. Mantle onto a small ledge pod, and follow the black slab angling left along a wonderful seam. Finish to anchors near the top of the cliff. Lower to your left, over the edge. Take a peak at Twist a Dream and Bindlestiff on your way down. This route would make for a decent beginner's first lead.

Location 

near the middle of the crag identified by the long sweeping black slab.

Protection 

10 bolts. use a long draw on the 3rd bolt. Due to the traversing nature, it works best to clean the draws by following.

I see that the route is 100ft.
Has anyone used a 60meter rope? Or is it only possible with a 70m?
(I'm interested in peoples experience with this particular climb - not basic math of 197ft)
