4 out of 5 stars Early Worm

With Mark B. Good line by Dave Thomson. Sustained by Canadian Rockies standards I thought. Rock was a lot sharper than I had hoped for. Those slab routes to the right are on much softer rock. Little chossy yet to. Will take some traffic to clean it well. All the pitches were making you work. The last bit, below and above the short finger rail, I thought was the crux, but I might have just been tired, little sleep and too much climbing if there is such a thing. That 2nd lead worked me as well. Cool goat situation going on to the right over the slab routes. Kid goat cliffed out I think, crying to the small herd above.

4 out of 5 stars Great route

I am not much of a sport climber but I have to addmit that this is a great route with varied climbing on close bolts, I combinded the last two pitchs which is not diffcult but gives full value of the climbing. This route is quite sustained and a lot of it relies on friction so if you are not climbing at the grade dont do it yet because this route will polish up very fast
