This climb is from the old times and has had a couple of up grades with all the stations upgraded with one selfdrive bolt, the frist station is on gear, the climbing below the crux pitch is a litle loose but not overly, the direct start is good at 5.8 and not runout like it says in the book, as everyone who knows about the 2nd pitch of Corkscrew it is about one of the hardest 5.7 pitchs anywhere, not to many that I have found with ok gear overhanging with marginal holds. The thrid pitch traverses quite right and than heads up but you still want to be somewhat right of the 2nd station, if you head left past the 2nd station you are in for some hard loose runout climbing. The 10b and 11b pitchs above are on good gear however they are quite stiff. The last 2 pitchs are both runout with hard climbing on both, these are not easy 5.8/9 traversing pitchs.

4 out of 5 stars awsom, still coming down

This is an awsom route, for the most part full on climbing with some good gear and a few R and X spots, very exciting and scary, not to many routes like this still. Hard and tirering for the grade.
