Excellent climbing after the first pitch. The second and third pitches are fantastic. The crux last pitch is OK.

The rock quality varies on this route ... ledges have loose crap. Apply the limestone touch, step carefully.

4 out of 5 stars first ascent on-sight

This is a very steady 5.10+ climb on the upper three pitches. The first access pitch (5.7) has questionable rock but after this pitch the rock quality improves dramatically. This is a Modern Mixed protection route and it takes a wide range of gear along with substantial bolt protection. Take a rack to 3.5" include micro cams and wires. The pitches are long 50+m. The details are all described in the NEW Ghost River Rock Climbs by Andy Genereux 2012.
