5 out of 5 stars Great Line

Awesome moves the whole way and sustained right to the anchor, this is a long climb with spaced bolts at the top.

5 out of 5 stars Desperate...

Very good route but I was not ready for it. Bailed out to Lost Highway's anchor and sent as a 5.11c according to book.

5 out of 5 stars Fun, but not 11d

A very long route that has its moments of excellence, however, it's a bit of a stretch to call this 11d. I think that when it was first established the 11d reflected the dearth of pro?

Reallllllyy Loooonnnnngggg! Wow, but what a great route. I chickend out at the prospect of a long fall. I wish I had read the description on here that calls for a cam. I thought this was sport climbing.
