4 out of 5 stars long....fun.

aside from the bolts being really spread out, this is a cool route. the guide book said it best "if you can do the first 2 moves, you're good to go"....very true. the begining is the hard part, the rest isn't bad, just messes with your head.

4 out of 5 stars nice crack

The line follows a crack. the crack looks small from the ground, but once you're on it, you realize its full of fantastic holds. not a hard climb at all, but very fun.

5 out of 5 stars Very Easy. Very fun.

This was the last route of the day, and it was a blast. it was cake compared to the 12s we were doing, but it was certainly worth the time. the view from the top is amazing, and the long climb us is very fun.

4 out of 5 stars wicked fun

Super fun route. not a terrible start but there's 2 major cruxes half way up. The end isn't bad at all, just a little creepy...you have to stand on a ledge that feels really solid....but there are no hands for balance and you have to reach up to the clip. really cool though.

4 out of 5 stars Fun. Easy. nuff said.

This route was pretty easy for me. I didn't want to do it at first, but a friend needed a top rop and well....someone needed to bring the rope up there!

aside from it's relative ease though, this route was actually kinda fun. Lots of big jugs, a mini crack, and a ledge or two for some good breaking areas.

I suggest the route if you are:

a. new to climbing, with a fairly solid grasp on technical concepts
b. in need of a good warm up/ warm down route.
c. a pro and getting frustrated with a current project and you want to climb something that will make you feel like you at least did SOMETHING on your trip to redwing.

5 out of 5 stars Favorite route Thusfar at redwing

This is a beautiful line with some tricky moves. The half of the route is pretty simple, but the fun part comes at the overhang. It feels really pumpy the first few attempts but once you figure out the technique and the hand placements, the route opens right up. The hardest part is getting over the overhang, due to the severe lacking of foot placements. But once you make it over the hump, the rest of the route feels like a cakewalk.

I highly recommend giving this one a shot.

"GO BIG"
