4 out of 5 stars climb it almost every time im at dixon

I like this route. Its a little balancy in some parts and has some creative hand work. Always have thought 5.10a was a little high for this route, but nonetheless a very fun climb. Also a nice lead to practice placing gear.

One of these days I'll grow a set of nuts and lead this route. Until then, I am quite content to TR this. I wish that I felt more comfortable jamming so that I didn't have to lie-back the whole middle section. Good gear if you wanted to lead.
