This route was also first free climbed by the late Todd Skinner and later by the equally legendary Alan Watts. So if you are REALLY interested it could make a nice trad lead project. Good Luck!

4 out of 5 stars Fun Times

Pitch 1 is C1 happiness, straight up and straight forward placements. A great pitch to get some hand-placed angles sawed off practice in.
Pitch 2 continues the rack and has def seen less traffic, slightly trickier placements then traverses to the arching seam via two bolts then.... a rivet with a stripped head, no threads and a downward bend and just the slightest mushrooming at the end where the top had come off. My smallest wire rivet hanger barely held on. Leads to bomber looking fixed heads to a rap anchor on an obvious edge.
The rest of the pitch looks chill following a few more fixed heads over a bulge to what the guide book says is 5.5 climbing to a pair of bolts 50' or so away. A 60M rope reaches to the ground from the anchors on the small ledge so we went down. The third part of the pitch after these anchors will probably be more fun for the second than the leader due to its traversing low angle nature.
