4 out of 5 stars 5.6+

I thought this route was a little stout for a Tahquitz 5.6, but yes, slightly easier than the tope of P2 of El Whampo (5.7). May have just been the day. P1 starts with 15' bouldery runnout before getting to "safer" ground to runnout the next ~30ft. P1-P2 rock has seen some use and is getting smooth (not polished like Yosemite though). P3 OW was my favorite part of the climb, airy, yet not bad. P4 begins with 25' runnout but is 5.3'ish i'd say.

4 out of 5 stars P1&2

Led P1, Doug did 2. Linked up with Traitor Horn. Some loose block on P1 so be careful.

4 out of 5 stars A little tricky

1st pitch for 5.6 and the last pitch (I think is Jensens?) is unprotected and exposed albeit easy. Linked up with Traitor Horn.

5 out of 5 stars Start of the third pitch...wow!

Really enjoyed this climb. The start of the 3rd is exposed and commiting, but very positive holds once you go over the edge. Bring a big #5 cam to do the wide lieback crack on block at the top.

4 out of 5 stars fun

very fun route with great exposure at the start of pitch 3, your feet drop away and you look down at the deck 500ft below.
