Onsight Onsight ascent by: tyler on 2017-12-02 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars Moderately Fun

Felt more like 5.9, or maybe .10- per "modern" climbing standards. Very safe (i.e. good bolts, closely spaced). There is an Africanized Bee hive (killer bees) maybe 50 feet to the right of the route, and 30 feet from the ground. My wife upset them as we prepared to climb the multi-pitch route to the right (can't remember name). Beware...

4 out of 5 stars Great route

I wouldn't call this route a 5 10 it seemed to be closer to 9 but great route. Not real difficult and the rock is pretty loose but it is in my opinion the best climb on the headwall.

4 out of 5 stars First 5.10 lead!

This was my first 5.10 that I ever lead, almost onsighted, but definitely felt easier than a 5.10. The crux is the first 3 bolts, after that pretty easy climb.
