Description:

This route starts on the far left end of the crag, you have to scramble up a gully to reach the base. Starts up a slab with a large pothole type hueco at the first bolt and climb up a face with a blunt arete on the left. ... ALWAYS TIE A KNOT IN THE END OF YOUR ROPE...

4 out of 5 stars First Free Solo!

Amazing route and was a perfect level for some intimidating but safe free solo for my comfort zone. Just looked for a high star easy route in the guidebook without reading about it so I got a solid OS too! It has a bit of everything and then allows you to do just a few feet of easy scrambling to top out all the way. Awesome!

4 out of 5 stars Fun but tough

The guide book has this as a 5.7, but it is definitely at least 5.8. Quite the challenge for a beginner climber like myself but do-able. This is a long route (107' if I remember correctly). Takes every inch of a 60m rope. TIE THE END!!
