5 out of 5 stars Great climb

This is now one of my favorite climbs (at least I think this is the climb that I did). I loved the pockets in the granite and the chains with the hooks at the top. The view of Donner Lake is beautiful from here.

5 out of 5 stars Good

Fun face pocket moves, to a big ledge to a steep face. The best option for warm up at the road cut.

4 out of 5 stars escargot

Great pocketed moves on granite. If that ledge weren't there, it'd be a serious legit route! Very fun up high.
