4 out of 5 stars Only first 1.5 pitches

Got half way up pitch 2 when a couple of very big trees fell down near Shannon Falls. It was really loud and followed by 5 minutes of multiple screams, then the sound of sirens. I'm a doctor and my climbing partner was a ER nurse. We decided to back off and see if anyone needed help. Fortunately noone was hurt. The first pitch was fun. The second pitch I was finding really hard. I'm a 10b (sport) climber but I don't have much practice with crack. It was an inside corner crack you kind of had to lay back on.

5 out of 5 stars Very fun climb!

My favorite during my weekend at Squamish. Fun moves, great view, easily protected. We combined 2 of the pitches with a 70m, I think pitches 5 and 6. We belayed each other down the first part of the walk off b/c it was fairly steep and unprotected.

4 out of 5 stars fun climb

I'm NOT a crack climber, but this was a fun, easy little climb. Bolted anchor.

5 out of 5 stars 5.8 in the 2012 Squamish Select guide

and I think that's probably accurate. Bolted anchor. Very fun route. We rapped it with a 70m rope. The guide books says "a 60-m rope just works, but be careful."

4 out of 5 stars easy for the grade

I think it was more like a 5.9. Fun nonetheless.

4 out of 5 stars fun enough

Led pitch 1, followed pitch 2. Not gushing about it, but it was fun enough.

4 out of 5 stars fun climb

Led pitch 1, followed pitch 2. There's a 5.8 variation for pitch 2 but it's not very clean.

5 out of 5 stars a blast

But NOT a 5.9. I went the wrong way half way up which I think made it harder, but even my friends who followed said it was at least 10a. Face climbing, good quality rock. Really fun topping out.
