4 out of 5 stars Kootenai

stellar day. Easy peezy on tr. Horizontal cracks up high allow you to protect the top section with smaller gear if you chose to not run it out. Jugs to the left of the overhang allow you to crush the crux.

4 out of 5 stars Very fun climb!

Great climb! My favorite of the area that we did for sure. Save a #4 or #5 BD Camalot for the last 10-12ft before the chains. 60m rope just reaches ground.

5 out of 5 stars another break through lead

Back in the mid 80s this was a physiological break-through to lead this climb (before I had any "Friends" on my rack). Still remember a #9 chalk protecting the crux after the overhang.
