    This is one of my favorite climbs. I love the consistency in difficulty and the broad range of technique. The lie-back in the beginning is solid, the middle is really thin and requires thorough balancing, and the ending consists of rocking jugs and powerful moves. I can't help but smile for the rest of the day after I have climbed this route.

    Easy 5.10a but fun lead with lots of different moves. Loved the crack in the beginning!

    This is a great consistent route on high quality rock. For some added excitement try leading on gear. You might find you have to clip a bolt or two around the crux to avoid an R/X runout, but it's mostly well protected. Hand sizes for the bottom crack, and micros in horizontals for the top.

    You could probably get by with a 40m rope, barely passed the middle mark of a 70m when starting from the platform.
