Description:

Steep route with a clearly defined crux half way up. Pull through that and it's easier ground to the roof. The keystone rattles but the first ascentionists got into it with a 5' crow bar and couldn't get it out. SWEET! **

4 out of 5 stars Awesome.

What a great climb. Lots of variation in style, great bomber holds, and an amazing roof pull. Good times. Felt the sketchiest part was at the bottom.

Hard route but really fun. Clipping the bolt over the roof and then pulling through it was the hardest part of the route. Wouldn't want to do this if I was any shorter.

5 out of 5 stars Sweet!!!

Thought the hardest part was clipping the second bolt... maybe I should be clipping it a bit lower. Love the roof!!!
