Description:

A great route that needs some traffic to clean it up with the odd section of suspect rock. There are plenty of bolts but many good gear placements and great crack climbing. The bolt through the crux on the last pitch is a bit sketchy clipping and seems a bit off placement. The crux pitch is quite sustained with very bouldery moves with great climbing above. This route is very sustained in the mid 10s with the odd hard move here and there.

Descent Options:

Walk off to the east or rap Boomerang.

4 out of 5 stars Great Route

This was a very fun climb for a short day and with the short pitch's makes for a fun powerful climb. This route needs some traffic to clean it up but the last pitch has a really questionable clipping hold for the second bolt and the 4th pitch leaving the belay has some insecure climbing above a ledge for a few meters to the bolt.
