Description:

This is the route just left of Autumn. The middle of three routes down in the creek. 3 pitches. 1st pitch is more like 10d-11a but I will stick with the 11b rating given in the guide. Very fun route. Just a notch in quality below Autumn. Three pitches total. The first pitch being the hardest then droping into the low 10's afterwards. Pitch three ends on a spectacular arete. Reminiscent of the final 5.6 pitch on the Yellow Spur. Not quite as grand of course

4 out of 5 stars great roof

Lots of fun and felt easier than the 11b it's given. Rest of the route was fun .10

Excellent route. Highly recommended. Basically a 10b route with an 11b overhang crux on the first pitch. There's a (poorly placed) bolt just at the lip of the overhang, so it's well protected. Took a couple of tries to get the crux. A challenging, sustained and scenic route. Led P1 and P3.
