Description:

A really cool technical sport climb. Utilizes many sidepulls, underclings, and highsteps. Very well protected. Lower off chains with 1 rope. A great diversion when you have been jamming and placing gear all day. Starts 15 feet right of Catchy. Watch for poison oak at the base.

4 out of 5 stars Great warmup

Not very sustained but you do have to link a few insecure moves.

5 out of 5 stars Glad to hear someone else thought it was hard.

This one was right at my OS limit. I thought it was more like 11+. Two seperate cruxes. First is harder, and hard to read.

3 out of 5 stars Techy

Makes you think for sure. Like climbing on a bunch of Pringles. Probably about as hard as 5.11a gets anywhere you go. Heard from several people that stuff has been breaking off over the years making the holds and feet smaller, thus making the route harder. Not hard to believe given the nature of the rock. Probably more like .11b/c these days.
