Super fun. No rack required for the 2 pitches, well protected with bolts and pins. If you finish up on the last pitch of Journey bring a BD .5 and .75 and the whole route is well protected.
Recommend going to the top for and excellent 3 pitch outing.

|Fun and fairly consistent climbing in the 5.9 range. Third pitch might is excellent. Take it to the top. Careful on the descent to not miss the 2nd rap station. Lots of hard work put into this route and an excellent find. Thanks!|

Glad you liked this area as much as I do. I was never a fan of waiting in line for routes, therefore I like to ditch away from the crowds in areas like this. Our goal was to put up enough routes that more than one party could climb there.
As of two weeks ago, there are a few of the suspect Austria Alpin knifeblades on this route. I didn't have a hammer nor anything to replace them with. The yare in an area that is heavily protected therefore I wouldn't worry too much. When I get the chance, I am going to go up with some BD knifeblades and replace them.
