We did this today after climbing El Camino Real. Big time fun. Crux is between bolts 3 and 4. Pulling the roof is magic. I rate it 11b/c. 4 stars.

Four stars? Like....right up there with the very best of the best routes on Tahquitz?

I haven't done it...just posted it here to get any info for the next guidebook. I'll take natebloser's word on the rating. Anyone else done it? Looks like a good pitch.

Anyone know the name of the route or who did the FA? It's been there for probably at least ten years!

Climbed this again after several years. I think Bob is right. Not really 4 stars. The line is short and the rock quality is not perfect. Still some cool moves and worth doing.
