5 out of 5 stars best of the three routes we did!

Loved this route. Long (done with a 70m all the way to the top)
Now I have to go back to Clark

5 out of 5 stars Just barely ok with 60m!

Great, fun, easy climb, with a nice airy finish. Pretty solid, rewarding .8. Another group said they made it (just barely) back to the bottom with a 60, and we managed too, but there's not much spare rope after getting to the anchors and back!

Definitely the best climb we did at Area 13.

4 out of 5 stars long and fun going up the arete

one bolt placement above chains of the line to the left is not really in the best spot. fun climbing. long route. great view.

5 out of 5 stars awesomely long

A 70 meter rope is in order for this route, but we did it with a 60 by belaying from the bottom on lead then from the top for the second, then rappel down in two stretches using the midway anchor.

Long sustained 5.8 climb (with a possible sketchy 5.9 face move between the second and thrid to the last bolts). There is an airy section starting on the second bolt after the midway anchor (yes, clip the puppy on one of the midway anchors).

Highly recommended.
