5 out of 5 stars Another LL

classic. Never found the bolt and pin at the top of the 1st pitch that are on the Supertopo. I disagree that there is no real crux. The 2nd bulge on the 2nd pitch felt cruxy to me.

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.
