4 out of 5 stars Bring Your Smearing Shoes

Fun slab climb.

You really need to trust your feet on this one, especially if the route is a bit wet. If I recall, there were 4 or 5 nice underclings on the route.

Seemed a bit harder than the 10a grade listed in the guide.

5 out of 5 stars Great Slab Section

Physical crux is clearing the small roof near the bottom. The upper slab section takes a lot more mental focus, so it seems harder.

If you don't want to lead it, you can top out on Chicken Shack and drop a toprope onto the route.

3 out of 5 stars none

Traverse at the start can be tricky, since you can't see your feet at all.

Falling on the traverse on TR will mess your rope up bad, the edge of the rock is very sharp. I've already cut one rope on it and had a close call with another.

Very easy after the traverse, with closely spaced bolts.

Fun little route. Crack at the bottom can be slippery if it has rained recently.
