4 out of 5 stars great fun

This route was a lot of fun to climb. Good opportunity to practice the lie back and knee bar. Just a note, we did it on TR and noticed that both bolts are loose on the anchors. It is however, easily backed up by slinging a double length runner around the mushroom shaped rock the anchors are bolted into.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome

Great route, best I've been on at Sam's thus far. Fun gear, nice roofs, great feeling of accomplishment on it. Came back on

3/17/2008 to lead it again with tri-cams and hexes. A total blast and great place to get bomb gear.

5 out of 5 stars great

Very nice line. With great moves off the ground and through two small roofs.
Excellent gear all the way! This was the climb for the day, thanks to Allan for the encouragement and belay.
