Ergophobe - I only did pitch one while waiting for a party to climb Fancy Free. Though not in the same league as Thin Ice or Airy Interlude, this is surprisingly fun. The bolts are old button heads, but you aren't very far out from the gear below or the previous bolt, so even if one blew. mreardon - I combined the first two pitches. The second pitch is definitely dirty and closer to 11a/b with some minor runouts between the gear. Pitch 3 has fun 5.10a moves. Pitch 4 is thin fingers and very fun. The last pitch is solid 5.8/5.9 with two obivous crack lines to exit over the top.

What an amazing, yet dirty route. Nothing like shoving in a yellow alien under the dirt and hoping it stays!

Better than I expected. Fun moves with cool laybacks and face moves. It would be nice to get out there and replace one protection bolt on each pitch and perhaps one belay bolt.
