Description:

5 pitches. This is what moderates in Eldo are all about, variety. Everything from run out slabs, to steep thin corners, to hand cracks, to chimneys. Nothing but fun.

4 out of 5 stars Funky and Fun

The first pitch is a little weird but everything after that is real enjoyable. Got some snow while we were climbing which made things a little tougher but I don't know where the 5.8 part was.

4 out of 5 stars Nice climb

A nice route; from what I remember the 5.8 is not real long on this route, and some nice clean flared grooves at the top to finish on.

I've done this several times and it's great. Watch out for poison ivy at the base, though!
