4 out of 5 stars Excellent Edging

This route is really good. A little heady in a few places but excellent. Had thought of linking it into Dark Shadows but the topo made it look pretty improbably. I think you could do it though. Didn't look like a lot of gear but good rock. Guidebook says 10c which seems about right.

5 out of 5 stars No traffic on this one...

Gets done much less than its popular neighbor, Dark Shadows. Thought-provoking start above a shallow pool leads to four/five more pitches of the same. Typical RR face-climbing, only without bolts. Bring a set of aliens and look for horns to tie off. Never very continuous, but some difficult route-finding.

5 out of 5 stars Aesthetic wall

This route is sweet and very aesthetic. I'm not totally sure we followed the right line...but we climbed some great pitches!

I actually onsighted every pitch of this route...just not all at once!! Finally finished it all today.

We also replaced 6 bolts. All anchors are bomber and so are the protection bolts.
