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 Stiff

Amanda led this, and it seemed pretty stiff for 5.7. Sustained, a little runout, and not great protection. I found it harder than the 5.9 next to it.

There's 3 bolts that could use longer slings. Otherwise some small crack exist - but still felt runout in places. Despite what supertopo says - I don't think anything larger than .75 would go. 70m rope just barely makes it to rap/tr - actually had have the climber solo a few feet to clip the belay in. Make sure to tie knots in the end.

It was a fun climb, though not quite the amazing status supertopo gave. A mix of styles, but mostly some small holds on horizontal dikes, a little balance-y

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.

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