Description:

Just right of Sean's Climb Thin start to easy scrambling, then pull over a roof to amazing face climbing above. Final bulge is technical and challenging.

2 out of 5 stars meh

first half of the route sucks, but once established on the face above the ledge the climbing gets fun.

3 out of 5 stars Ken's Route - Sandbag!

The move onto the ledge is committing and the fall here is not a good idea, a face climber would struggle here. The middle is fun, and the top...not rock gardens 10b, I get by with a 10+ by making a traverse far right to a side pull, unless you're tall, I'd say this last move is hard. I broke a handhold and a foothold on my last redpoint attempt.

2 out of 5 stars Awkward

Not the best climb at RG - hard start and hard finish (although a key hold broke off a couple of years ago making the finish even harder). Also, a few section where you wouldn't want to fall (i.e. off of the first ledge). Likely at least 10c. Should be solid at the grade to lead this one.

seems a bit sandbag. More like a 10c. Not a very inspiring line...
