3 out of 5 stars appealing face

Following the bolts makes the climb a solid 5.10 (but still fun!). Tread slightly right of the first 3 bolts for 5.9 climbing.

1 out of 5 stars Never again

Wow. What a nasty route. Lot's of lichen, greasy, slopey laybacks, and plenty of weed hacking here. This garbage, and the runouts to make up for the lack of large gear made it quite stiff for the grade. It's what trad climbing is all about...

3 out of 5 stars watch for PI!

a little poison ivy to start the route, but can be avoided easily. Exiting the upper seam was interesting for 5.6 climbing. Seemed more 5.7ish to me...

3 out of 5 stars Nice first pitch

The first pitch is quite nice for 5.6 climbing. Takes gear well. Above it gets a bit run out, but not too bad. The off width is a beast.

3 out of 5 stars Stiff 5.8

The lower section is thin face climbing. It could also be that I was climbing in a cloud, surrounded by mist, and that made it feel harder.. yeah.. that's it. Upper section is jug bashing to the top.

2 out of 5 stars Yikes!!

More like difficult walking. The upper corner was fun, though.

4 out of 5 stars 5.9

Wheaties qualifies as a 5.9. To say that the breakfast of champions pitch is 5.9 is a bit of a local sandbag. More like 10a if you don't know the route (especially at the second bolt off the ledge).
