5 out of 5 stars Dummy's Delight

Really enjoyed this route. Incredible early morning sun on a cold day. Ran it out to the arch and then placed medium gear at will. The crux is sort of at the end when in gets cramped down to fingers and you need to swing your feet out to the slab to make a move to large jugs. With Joe K.

5 out of 5 stars So rad!

Climbed the face of the boulder next to the start - forget the grovelly crack. Stellar jams with good edges for your feet on this one. Don't know why this climb doesn't have a better reputation...

3 out of 5 stars a real dummy's route

not sure if the name has a hidden meaning, but it is one of the hardest 5.9 I have been on. The hands are great, but the feet are terrible. A great lead by my climbing partner Tom.
