This can be lead on gear. Gear can be hard. I took a small lead fall resulting in 2 pieces popping. Mentally strenuous. Grade increases drastically on lead...

Say hello to the runout! Super fun route, great feet with some small hands.

Few places for gear in the lower middle half. Careful!

Nice climb right in town with an accurate rating (5.10c) I would say.
The rock is peridotite (low Silica, high magnesium, crystalline/intrusive), and the rock quality isn't really awesome. I don't do really do trad but there are only a few good placements I can see, and hardly anything toward the top. Anyone leading this thing is just a step away from free soloing, and again the rock quality isn't great so I wouldn't reaccomend leading this. Danger danger, you crazy stranger.

Anyone know if there is any change of this ever being bolted? It seems like that's not the ethic around here. Also complicated by being in the park?
