4 out of 5 stars Nice climbing

I liked this one, much more sustained and enjoyable climbing throughout the whole route than some of the other routes in this area. Note that a 60m rope reaches the ground from the top of the first pitch just fine.

5 out of 5 stars the best multi-pitch sport route I've been on

15 years of climbing... this is probably my favorite sport lead, ever. Long, consistent, well protected, slightly technical first pitch... so much fun. Very sad that we were forced off due to a threatening thunder storm.

It's way easier than the 5.8+ the guide book gave it, and definitely way easier than the 5.9 rated here. Probably consistently 7, with a couple of 8- moves. The length probably gave it the extra rating.

If you want to rap off, you need a 70 meter rope to fully reach bottom. 60 meter would get you 5 feet off the ground, but with the slopey start, and rope stretch, you will be fine.
