This climb is a tribute to the Late Mike Strassman! Another route not to be missed on this wall. Excellent rock and exposure will make this a memorable one for anyone new to climbing.

A well conceived and well protected line with some quite technical moves throughout. I would not recommend this one to anyone who is not pretty solid on 5.8 lead, as a fall in a couple spots could spell trouble.
I had the pleasure of meeting Tony H. out there today. Thanks to TL, TH and AT for all the work out here.

  • the chains at top of pitch 2 are the rustiest I have ever seen on a new anchor. What's up with that?
