Description:

6 pitches, though 3&4 are easy to string together. 6th pitch (last) goes wandering off line to left at 5.7 or go straight up through 5.9 roof crux with loose top out (fun! really!). Top out for walk off is a sketchy traverse across choss to trees so make sure your last anchor is bomb proof - the guidebook warns you about it and this would be a good time to listen. (There's beta on the last station in the "climbed by" description.)

4 out of 5 stars Bonanza

Climbed with Adrienne from Hungary. Her first multi pitch trad climb. Weather was suspect, so we had the entire West Phantom to ourselves except for Andy G whose was taking some photos for his next guidebook. Had a fantastic day. The chimney pitch is not near as difficult as made out by some, don't be intimidated. Those were a couple of nice corner pitches up higher. Nothing remarkable about the climb really. We watched the weather go nuts on the other end of the lake all day. Sometimes your just living right.

Nice climbing on good rock, with some exposure/traverse.

Amazing climb in an amazing setting. Traverse on the second to last pitch is pure gold!

Fun climb but the first pitch (OW) sucks despite some new bolts. Some route finding after that, but relatively straightforward. We topped out to find a foot of snow with a hard sun crust we broke through on the walkoff.. ouch.

4 out of 5 stars Fun trad route

There are a bunch of pitons on this route which make it safer (if you trust old pitons of course). The first pitch is a nasty off-width chimney but it gets better afterwards. Rappel next to a small waterfall could be a lot of fun in a hot summer day, but it was not fun in cold October evening.
