4 out of 5 stars Did the climb with Bob Gaines!

I was taking my SPI exam with Bob Gaines and he suggested this climb. While belaying for the other person taking the exam Bob mentioned that he had the first ascent on the climb back in 98 and I got to watch him climb it!
Fun climb but a little run out to the first bolt, more of a bolted trad climb than a sport climb.

4 out of 5 stars Excellent variety in moves

This route has lots of variety, from chimney work to roof and slab work. Nice for those climbers who getting comfy on lead and want to challenge themselves mentally. The clip and move out from under the roof is super fun to lead.

4 out of 5 stars Sexy Grandma

With Jason and Janice. I really enjoyed the pull out to arete move on this route. Worth doing with Dogleg, Double Cross and Orphan for a solid four routes in the sun.
