3 out of 5 stars Heads up

This climb was enjoyable in that every pitch had something that really got our attention. Definitely makes for a fun afternoon when combined with one of the other 5.10's at the Papoose.

5 out of 5 stars The Papoose never disappoints

I had another hummingbird encounter on this climb. It came up right behind my head as I lead the crack on the second pitch. Too wide for my hands, so I ended up taking. I led the 10c slab final pitch and took a fall. I just love every climb on the papoose so far!

4 out of 5 stars ANother good 5.10!

Anytime we climb at the Papoose, we are alone. This amazes me. There are 3 excellent 5.10 multipitch routes. The approach is 5 minutes! Papoose One was not as good as Centerfold or Hairpin, but it was not far behind. Good route! I led pitches 1, 3, and 6. Tiff led 2, 4, and 5.
