4 out of 5 stars Awesome route

Personally liked it better than bear's reach. My partner came off slipped and hit her back (backpack) at the sustained cruxy part of P2 (watch out).

5 out of 5 stars Cool route

led 1st and 2nd pitches, BG took 3rd, including a whipper. The girl will go for it. This climb eats up offset aliens.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome

I enjoyed this climb more than Bear's Reach. Steep and bulgy with plenty of great pro. Great moves that make you think, but aren't too hard.

4 out of 5 stars Eric Friedlander

I lead the first pitch last year and finally nabbed the next two pitches. Great climb. A few steep bulges, but no real "crux" to speak of.

4 out of 5 stars Good first 5.8 lead

Pretty easy 5.8. Bring more smaller cams around .5-1"

4 out of 5 stars good warmup

very fun, lots of good gear placements, great first route for the leap. Not too difficult for a 5.8.

5 out of 5 stars fun

a really relaxing climb, each of the harder moves are followed immediately by jugs and all with bomber gear. The two bulges are interesting, my second took falls on both.

the 5.9 finish was fun and personally i think doing the walk around would be cheating and depriving you of a great finish.

i used a #4 at the botom, but if you're afraid of falling bring a #5 to place up higher in the crack to keep you from rolling down that slab below.
also i figured out some secret beta that makes pulling the move easier than all the 5.7 and 5.8 bulges below... pm if curious
