The bottom thrid of this route climbs through scragly 5.5-5.8 terrian for 4 pitches then the next 4 have great moderate climbing and the last two pitches suffer from some poorer rock that this part of the cliff has. A very good route with lots of varied climbing a few small run outs and lots of variations to bring it up to 10a

Descent Options:

Walk down the west

3 out of 5 stars good route

A good route deserving of 1 out of 3 or 2 out of 5 stars, we simul climbed the frist 4 pitchs than did the rest, haveing some micro cams would have been good, I did the moms fears finish for a wet cold 10a, the rock above the crux is poor but nothing to wright home about, take the left corner at the very top if doing this finish
