It's horrible. Not worth doing until it's the last route left on a list. 5.7ish on poor or no gear.

have you done it? I know what it says in the book, I am wanting to hear about it from someone thats climbed it. Is the rock as loose as the book says or do they mean that it is rotten? How was pro? What makes it so bad?
thanks :D

Yes, climbed it on the way to a new route project. The rock is the worst on Yam, the pro is dicey knifeblades and loose nuts. Don't ever bother with the exreme west end of the cliff, it is flat out awful.

For a chossy experience climb Balrog and Freakout, They're alot of fun if you have the skills and knowledge to do it safely.
