Description:

Just left of The Big Easy, climb a very constant overhang past six bolts to a two-bolt anchor. This route is so overhung it provides a great place to hide and climb during rain storms. After leading the best way to get the draws down is gettting some one to follow your lead up and unclip the draws as they climb. I have flown and hit the tree, not a great thing. 60 feet very noticeable climb 4 stars FA:Tony & Lori Mayse and Terry Andrews 4/94

5 out of 5 stars first ascent

i imagined this climb on the road after getting rained off mt. magazine. then, after spending a rainy day toproping it (the crux knob was wet) and bolting it, i got it the next weekend. it was great fun with marion, tony, and lori. i caught a bolt on the top of the head and provided some bloody excitement. i got it in my first lead attempt and avoided the crack altogether. i felt bad afterwards and apologized to clay, didn't intend to ruin his crack climb.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Most ridiculous, flailing, no style, whining, swinging, sweating, hang dogging ascent I've ever made. Absolutely stellar route that showed me just how completely worthless I am when pumped out.
