5 out of 5 stars Not a sport route

We wanted to climb Z tree but due to slow party we jumped on the dike instead. It is a memorable climb. How often do you climb 360ft with only 4 bolts of pro in between (not including anchors) ? We skipped the crux p4-p5 and rapped instead. Really memorable climb. Update: Climbed p4 and p5 7/27/13. P4 does not seem to have much traffic and it is indeed the scariest part of the route. Money pitches are 1-3 though!.

5 out of 5 stars Amazing route!

Don't even think about it if you aren't totally solid on runout tuolumne slabs, and make sure you have your head together. Its definitely a notch above great pumpkin.

The rack is awesome: 3 quickdraws.

3 out of 5 stars -

Uninteresting. Knobs and flakes can still pop off even on well traveled routes; I pulled one off while making a move just before the 3rd pitch anchors.
