Description:

sustained steep crack climb, gives a more granite-like sensation than the soft-looking sandstone you expect.

5 out of 5 stars Amazing Stone!

Oh, so quality. The moves were great and fairly varied. I got the impression from CrackMD that this would be easy.... Not so! Just be ready to dig deep for this one and you'll get it. The locks are so solid. I used only a single set of fingers and a couple extra .75 -1s which i don't entirely suggest. pretty spaced but I was worked from a long day of sport and i desperately pulled this off the only way i could.... keep climbing! Probably the hardest sandstone I've encountered out west.

5 out of 5 stars Lived up to expectations

First viewed this route in 2003. Waited until today to climb it. Easier than I expected. High quality crackclimbing and gear placements the whole way. For gear, I'd recommend triples from blue metolius to 0.75 Camelot along with a smattering of smaller and larger pieces. Nothing larger than #1 Camelot required.

5 out of 5 stars Classic Line

Gear is great. Save a .5 and/or .75 for the top. Also, I'd recommend protecting the 5.9 start.
