Description:

Starts at the wooden ledge and goes up an arete/face. It is a little sporty getting to the 1st bolt (any mortal climber will want to stick-clip). A good variation is, stangely enough, the original line.....off-route the arete and stay straight over the bolts (5.11+). Belayer beware, a lot of rock still comes off this route. One of the best routes in the entire guidebook!

4 out of 5 stars This route is blah

I could see how the original line would be classic, but going off left to the arete is contrived and silly. Don't see what all the buzz is about, Danger Boy and South of the Trout Farm are both MUCH better routes, in aesthetics, rock quality, sustainedness, etc.

the grades are pretty soft. 10a at the hardest. Beautiful and exposed though.
