5 out of 5 stars Best 11b in North America

Not much else can be said. Its a classic not just for skaha but for anywhere. Amazing line. The finish is the cherry on top

5 out of 5 stars yes

My first time to Skaha and this was probably my favorite route. Long, sustained and has an exposed feel! If you have a 60 meter rope be careful when lowering.

5 out of 5 stars One of the best sport routes at Skaha!

Did this as the last route of our three day Memorial weekend trip. Probably should have tried it when I was a litter fresher, but I still managed to hang on to the chains. As everyone says, its an incredible route and well worth getting on. Awesome moves, great views and a really cool finish.
