|5.10 is the grade we were told - could be a sandbag. We thought it was tougher than most 5.10s we'd done, but we're no studs.|

|I'd agree that this is one of the best at Frey. Every pitch was sssooo much fun. If you only have a short amount of time I'd recommend getting on this over Torre Principal. The hike is also not as bad as it looks and it is really beautiful up there.|

|One of the most straight-forward and reasonably-graded long routes at Frey. But then again, maybe I am just getting used to the consistent sand-bagging? Really fun climbing- great exposure and unusual climbing on featured granite. Also, you can descend the route with one 70m rope- I think 60m is no problem as well- just five rappels down the route.|

|Amazing route doesn't even say enough! Really spectacular and one of the most interesting things I've ever climbed. I'd agree that it's well graded at 5.10 but it's runout in spots so you might not want to be leading at your limit on this one.|

Best route we did on our first trip to Frey! Every pitch is awesome. Well worth the long approach.
A bit of useful beta on the routed:
- P1 felt hard for the grade; not compared to the rest of the route, just the pitch grade
- A number 4 was nice for P2, but not necessary. Felt a bit bouldery.
- The run-out on P3 does get easier as you go, but you feel the distance building as you keep traversing.
- P4 can be quite confusing! After passing by the roof (to the left) you may be tempted to keep going up the thin crack. Don't do this. It's much harder than the grade and gets run-out. The route works back right at obvious huecos and you get some pro in after a short traverse (sling a rock feature).
- P5 is pure, juggy fun!
Confirm you can rap the route with a single 70m. I don't think a 60m would reach the cave on the second rappel.
