Description:

One 110' pitch. The first bolt is about 20'-25' off the deck and there's only a blue Alien placement before that (down low). Very sustained 5.7 and a kinda scary lead for the grade. The first crux comes just after clipping the first bolt. Physically, it's easy, but psychologically it's a little rough. The next comes just before making the second clip (or after, if you're tall). After the third bolt, there's a crack to protect, and the climbing feels easier. Rap from the anchors with one 70 meter or two 60 meter ropes. davidji's edit: one 60m rope should be fine if you don't mind downclimbing the first maybe 10 feet of the climb.

4 out of 5 stars Sweet route

Climbed w party of 3. Best part was the crack at the top. I wish that crack was longer.

3 out of 5 stars Great 5.7

One of the better 5.7 climbs I've done. Pretty much 5.6-5.7 all the way.

5 out of 5 stars Hogwild

FANTASTIC pitch! It's way harder than it looks from the ground. Bring small pro, and go for it!

4 out of 5 stars Very nice

Best 5.7 pitch I've done in '09. Clean rock, fun moves. Did with Yvan S. TR'd "Unknown" next to it. Kind of contrived 'cause it ends at same anchors for Hogwild.
