5 out of 5 stars Wicked

The crux is a solid 10d campus over the roof, super fun. Ran into a guy from ASCA after sending and learned he had rebolted the route two days prior with bomber glue ins, which is awesome because I climbed it a year prior and nearly every bolt was a spinner, he says a 50-75 year life expectancy for these new guys!

4 out of 5 stars Soft rock

The route didn't quite feel 11b, with beta it could go way lower but onsighting had its challenges, there's a jug ready to pull on the last bolt before the anchors.

5 out of 5 stars Great Climb, Rough Rap

First pitch was easy, run it out; second pitch was mediocre quality; third pitch was a blast; fourth pitch was money, crack was easy to sew up, get your balls and hit the arrete solo; fifth pitch is fun, stay right, manky anchor; sixth pitch is long, real long, slung a chickenhead for an anchor; seventh is the crack, don't lieback it, it'll kill you; to rappel start third classing up following good cairns and find the "airy traverse" not as bad as it looks but committing, find the bolted anchors by the big pine tree, 1st rap one full 70, then a double seventy with 50 feet of downclimbing, then another fullll double seventy to the main ledge where there is a walkoff to the right towards the start of the route.

4 out of 5 stars Boss

I hadn't really looked into the crag other than directions and hopped on this as a warm up and found myself in an awesome though provoking route, probably best work on my route reading...
