Gets an R rating in Marty's book and looking at the FA names I am sure it deserves one plus I bet it's stout as well.

Marty's guide book gives this route 3 stars which means great. I gave it 2 cause I know nothing about the route. Next time I am at Owens I will attempt to climb it and provide more information. Has anyone climbed it? If so how scary is it? Marty gives it an R rating.

Jon, If you don't know anything about the route perhaps you should refrain from posting it. Your description is poor, and not what we want in the database.

Euan, you are both observant and wise. I know my description is poor that's why I am asking anyone who knows about this route to help me out. I put the this route in the database cause I added 3 routes to it's left that I do know something about and have climbed some of them and I wanted to fill in some blank spots for reference. Like I said, next time I am at Owens, I will get on this route and improve my description.
