Thin, bouldery, start. It's the crux. Then a bit pumpy to the ledge. Little bit of a crux at the top.


There's a dispute weather Curt Shannon did the first ascent. If he didn't I did. Maybe Curt will chime in on this cause he was gone from the scene when we started climbing.

"A Guide to Rock Climbing in the Spokane Area" by Bob Loomis (3rd Edition) has always contained the correct information concerning this climb. I had successfully TR'd this route and installed the bolts with the idea of returning to lead it. Unfortunately, I never did get around to doing that. Any route related rumors or controversy beyond that has been completely fabricated for reasons unknown to me.
