5 out of 5 stars Conduit to the cosmos if really fun

Pulled out large rock about 100 feet up second pitch, helmets are a great idea for this route. Be aware of moving too far out left from the water shoot, this is where the flaky rock is at, much more solid in the darker water shoot area. There is a large headstone that the route ends at, the third pitch is 5.12 but well protected, and is not included in the original route. Double rope rappel needed. Reallly fun route! be aware of slight runout over the 10d bulge on the first pitch.
