Description:

Very crumbly. Most of the climb is basically a bolt ladder but very low angle after the first 4 bolts so I wouldn't recommend it to practice aid on, though you could. You have to climb through tree branches about a third of the way up so be sure to throw your rope clear of it when preparing to rappel.

Descent Options:

Rappel or continue up another route. There are no chains or permanent rap rings so bring your own webbing to make a rap anchor.

3 out of 5 stars Fun climb, but I hate the tree.

I used this as my first practice aid climb. It's nice and vertical up to the tree, then it slabs out where you have make some long reaches and eventually just move into some easy free climbing. I later free climbed it on toprope and agree that the start may be harder than 5.9. The rock quality wasn't that bad for the Pinns.

stupid tree. would be a great climb without it. you spend more time clipping bolts than actually climbing, though.

5 out of 5 stars Lets climb it again!

My dad led it, I followed him. It's a very fun climb, tough start but I'm starting to get it. I forgot my climbing shoes, so I climbed up in my approach shoes, not too bad. Excellent climb!

5 out of 5 stars Great Climb!

Awesome lead climb! After the fifth or six bolt there is a tree in the way, but it's not too much of a problem. Cool start of the climb, nice and vertical. Pretty easy once you're past the tree, just sometimes it's hard to see the bolts. Some bolts are iffy too, so always check the bolt before you clip in.
