A really fun climb and likely the best at the Pit. Use double draws on 3 and 4 to reduce drag.

5 out of 5 stars .

I used shoulder length slings on bolts 3 and 4 just to have more bolts between myself and the ground (granted its the easiest climbing on the route...), you can easily clip the 4th and then unclip the 3rd to eliminate the rope drag too. I'm short and can clip the first bolt from the start jug but it's a big reach, the stick clip is nice.

5 out of 5 stars Favorite route at The Pit

Couple hard moves down low. Control the burn as you pull the bulge. Hang on to the top!

5 out of 5 stars holy crap, great route!!

Nice intro route to flagstaff sport climbing for me. Awesome route. The start is stiff but the redpoint crux is up high. fell up there on a couple burns. Just unclip the 3rd draw to make life easier. Big rests keeps the pump at bay.
