It really doesn't get any better for a training route for people new to multi-pitch trad. 3 pitches of crack riddled slabs that eat up any type of pro. This route would be considered 4th class in some areas. Slung a few trees. The only pro we placed was for belay anchors and then on the last pitch. Have no ideas why this route is listed as X rated and 5.9. Gloves for descent.
