5 out of 5 stars Good Route

Really nice flake system leads to tenuous face climbing. Tall guys can reach out left to use the arete to pull through the roof, but guess what! I ain't a tall guy! Haha much harder for shorties. Proud redpoint.

5 out of 5 stars Fun

I thought the lieback was pretty tecky until I got to the finishing moves. Save some juice for the top cuz it's got some thin and powerful moves to reach them anchors. Maybe just a tad sandbagged.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent Route

One of my favorites at the Gorge. Good luck with the finishing move! It's an onsight crusher! Lieback on a great flake leads to excellent crimpy face climbing.
