4 out of 5 stars on-sight

This is a good route overall. The third pitch is the money bit though and makes this a good route to combine with either Bonanza or Legends of the Fall the two other multi-pitch routes in the Bonanza Bay. See the new Ghost River Rock Climbs (2012) by Andy Genereux for the full details on these climbs.
