At the original grade of 5.10c, this climb was truly the biggest sandbag in the Jasper area – a few solid 5.12 leaders have been known to take numerous hangs on the crux of this climb. Having said that, the climb is still another of the best at the crag and shouldn’t be missed. The initial section is steep and pumpy, but there is a cramped rest on the only obvious small ledge halfway up the route, right before the crux. Once you figure on the fiendish crux (being tall can be a disadvantage), you get to climb the beautiful left facing corner, which is slightly overhanging and pumpy all the way to the anchors.

5 out of 5 stars My favourite at the Rock Gardens.

I love this climb and climb it almost everytime I climb at RG. It doesn't get climbed a lot, but should given the beauty and position of the line.
