4 out of 5 stars It would be committing to lead

TRd after onsight of Space Truckin. The Overhanging section and roof were really fun but sustained. I barely had enough gas in the tank to pull the layback moves after the roof; it eases quite a bit and finishes on the same upper anchor as Space Truckin.

5 out of 5 stars my new favorite at eagle lake

Really nice route. The diagonal finger crack is spectacular and protects very well. Upper pitch only needed one Blue (BD #3).
Climbing the upper portion as a layback instead of inside the crack seemed the best approach as my knee got a little stuck on lead.

5 out of 5 stars tricky start

Past the tricky start you'll find pure awesomeness on the roof traverse and save some gas for the sequency exit. (Followed Greg)

5 out of 5 stars sweet route

love the approach towards the lower crux. Route continues to be sustained after the "mini roof". I would still give it a 12a but would not argue if 11d.

5 out of 5 stars Superb approach, views and climbing

What to add from what everyobody else has already mentioned?. Here my two cents:
P0 or Croft variation is worth climbing, specially if there are people already on the Normal start.
On the right variation shown on ST, for For P3, The 10b thin shown on ST followed by the 5.9 OW or lieback was IMHO the crux of the route. The 10b thin was mental and physical, hard to protect for the follower (Glad Tony lead this one). From this point, we broke P4 into two going straight up, (the 10c lb has indeed poor pro and it is committing (I opted for aiding the short section) lead up to just below the RP's and belayed from there.
P5 is indeed a fantastic and memorable exposed pitch at 11.4K of elevation.

5 out of 5 stars pumpy route

I had to try the crux several times before I managed to get the reach for the hidden hold at the top. Good project to try next time in the area. Update: 3/31/16; Second attempt and managed to climb it with pre-clip draws. Next try will be the redpoint.

4 out of 5 stars mantle, reach (or not) and repeat

I had P1 of this route on my tick list for a while, and I really enjoyed it. The crux in the middle of the route was very reachy and committing for me I would guess 10c (I'm 5.9 with short wingspan). First bolt is high up so do not fall. The rest is pretty secure although run out in a couple of places. Stay away if you are not comfortable with run outs. It is possible to rap with two 40m ropes (or a single 80m). A 70 will not be enough to get you all the way down.
