4 out of 5 stars A little thin sometimes

I wouldn't go "ditto for Mayflower" on gear for this route. Put some of the #2's and 3's back in the bag and pull out some smaller TCU's and finger size pieces for the technical stemming crux. This one will make you think, not an enduro route like so many others at the Forks.

4 out of 5 stars Sweet!

I liked this, it's awesome, way better than Mayflower! Thin hands at the beginning, then a bouldery move off the pillar (or a stretch for short peeps), jamming, subtle in-cuts for some face features at times, yah.

PS. just clicked on the photo, that's me a couple of years ago trying it 4 the 1st time on TR & I thought there would be no way I could lead this thing!

3 out of 5 stars _

stiff climbing at the beginning, wet/icy up high but a good route - probably more fun when dry :)
