Description:

loose and steep corners. A friend of mine ripped a block the size of a TV off right at the crux, so the route might be harder now.

4 out of 5 stars I thought it was 10b

tough roof on the 2nd last pitch - off route? 10 pitch is fun.

3 out of 5 stars beats getting rained on

i would think about bringing a #5 camalot or equivalent, as well as one or two #4 and 2 #3, double #2 may be overkill, leave the really small stuff at home. be wary of rope drag traversing on the 5th pitch. some loose rock throughout.

4 out of 5 stars The Bowl

Good route, a litle loose and a litle polished but not bad, dont be afraid to take 2 #4 camalots as well as 2 #3 and 2's. The upper crux pitch is burly pulling the second overhang but there is a pin/bolt above to protect the down climb and you can thread the rope trough the screw link in order to protect the second. When you make the travese left above the route on pitch 5 you will see a 2 bolt belay, the 3 bolt belay is above and to the right over easy ground.
When pulling on the route just think back to when Don put up this climb in big boots and than relize how week we are.

Bring a large cam or BigBro. Loose, poor fixed gear.
