Description:

This one is best left alone. The rock quality is poor (even by Kid Goat standards) and it is run out in spots, though the crux is bolted. This is an 'old school' 5.7 which may cause new leaders some difficulty.

Descent Options:

Walk off.

4 out of 5 stars Twilight

Enjoyed the route, did it in 5 pitches since there is a belay station halfway up the 1st pitch. A little run out at times, didn't place any gear on the 2&3rd traverse pitches since its just slab anyway. I really liked the first (or first 2 in my case) and the last pitch. Route has cleaned up, there were not any significant loose rocks on the route, just the usual Rockies limestone.

I thought this was a pretty rad route, like almost all of the routes on Kid Goat its a mix bag of pins bolts and some questionable pro! The g/f linked pitches 2/3 together which I would NOT recommend unless your into traversing with a little protection and a whole lot of rope drag just pitch it out... The 5.7 pitch was not all that ''old school'' and went pretty easily with decent pro. Great route had a blast climb it.

4 out of 5 stars Interesting climb but watch out for loose rock.

Not a bad climb at all. Similar to the Keelhaul wall but with a very nice corner climb on pitch 4. Not as much fixed protection either... at least for the first half. Just watch out for loose rock. There are some boulders the size of a microwave oven which move when grabbed onto.
