Onsight Onsight ascent by: csproul on 2014-02-23 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars Ok route

Fun finger and lieback to a step-over. DOn't step back into the crack above the step-over. Face climb up flakes and shallow cracks up right and up. A little dirty, not as good as CHurch Bowl Lieback or Bishop's Terrace, but worth doing. Take 2 ropes to rap all the way to the ground, unless you want to down climb some.

Second Second ascent by: thecornyman on 2010-05-29 (View Climbing Log)

2 out of 5 stars Not worth it

couple of cool moves in the first two sections of the route then the third gets dirty and poor rock quality and hard to protect. Also the super topo says 80 feet from the ground and is incorrect. We rapped over to the chimney and then rapped again off that tree.

Flash Flash ascent by: bafiesta on 2009-04-20 (View Climbing Log)

2 out of 5 stars topo wrong

This climb is at least 100' long and thus you can't rap to the base on one 60 meter rope. The first 20 feet is the onlly worthwhile portion of the climb. The top is munge, and more difficult to protect, plus the actual climbing up there is unimpressive.
