5 out of 5 stars Old school, burly and awesome!!

Linked into the second pitch of this route after doing Illusions and wondered if climbing could get much better? The second pitch is amazing and not for the faint of heart. Its filled with burly hand and fist cracks, a roof traverse and sustained funkiness above! I wished I had 3 blue Camelot's and was so glad to have at least one #4. The last pitch starts on the far right side of the huge ledge above p2 and involves a series of tricky slab moves with poor gear to reach a 3/4" crack in a roof. This was not totally obvious to us at first and a fall here would suck. I would give this pitch a pg 13 rating.

5 out of 5 stars Burly

This was the last route we did for the weekend and what a finale! Very "muscly" and sustained with excellent protection. We did it in 3 pitches, I got the 1st and 3rd. The 2nd is the money pitch though, don't turn it down. Pro to 4.

A Great Old School Route, well worth humping the cams for. Pitch 2 is the linkup with Illusions
