5 out of 5 stars the sultan

I thought this route to be the easiest 10c I've ever been on. I thought it was not harder than 10a. But... the rock quality on this route was really good and the moves were varied. This route is definitely the one to do on this wall!

3 out of 5 stars Must like bushwacking

A remote crag, with an approach that redefines suck. However, The Sultan was a very clean route with a couple of challenging moves. Great options for pro down low (crux), gotta run a little longer up high thru the 5.8.

4 out of 5 stars Approach from the depths of Hell

This approach was steep, thick with catclaw and prickly pear, and neverending (2+ hours). I don't recommend it for the light of heart. The rock is actually very good and this route is quite fun. However, no 2 pitch route is worth this approach in my opinion, unless you want to loose considerable blood sweat and tears before you even start climbing.
