5 out of 5 stars Wow

Amazing! You can rap the whole thing if you end after P9 (?) - need 2 ropes for this.

3 out of 5 stars nice route

I think it's easiest to hand traverse right at the end, then top out. Climbed the route once a few years ago - came back and got it first try.

3 out of 5 stars can be wet at top

Climbed it once the previous year, but it was wet at the top. The first move is very reachy, but otherwise, I think 11b is the right grade (isn't that what the guidebook pegs it at?)

4 out of 5 stars good all the way up

good pro - top bulge finishing right (I'm not sure if the right finish is called Orange Peel) is definitely the way to go. Watch out for kicking a few loose pebbles down.

4 out of 5 stars Worth doing!

If you climb 5.12 at all, get on this route. The roof climbing is not hard. Great heel hook rest at the lip. Try to clip the bolt before pulling the lip (which is technical). Good rest after pulling the lip, then tricky upper moves - but if it were a boulder problem on the ground, it'd be easy.

4 out of 5 stars Easier if tall?

Great pump. Is the first ring pin safe? Have the upper bolts been replaced (I didn't notice)? Otherwise, great climbing. Three attempts in four years - about time I came back to it.

4 out of 5 stars willing to whip

Great route - sequence and good footwork will help stave off the pump at the top, but not completely. I had to take a few good falls (very clean, though) before getting it.

3 out of 5 stars sequence is everything

bouldery crux at the bottom has an easier sequence to the left. Hang a long draw if you're going for a redpoint. Top is all about sequence.

4 out of 5 stars accumulated fatigue

Great route. I'm quite solid at the grade, but I was tired (also 3rd day in a row and acclimatizing). I got tired leading the long 5.8 corner, and grunted through the chimney before the crux bulge. The crux protects very well - it's not hard, it's just at the end of the route. Great day, only ones on the Diamond or Chasm View at all! Three snow squalls, but no lightning. Rappel route is VERY confusing (bolt stations are hard to find, one missing on lower slabs?)

4 out of 5 stars Great route - not too committing

I think the pin was still there. I seem to remember a bolt, as well (I'm recording this a year later). The crux was very short, and you're on a level with your belayer. After the crux pitch, we traversed around to the back side (North ridge?) b/c I wasn't sure if we were on a dead end.
