Onsight Onsight ascent by: Andyroo12 on 2012-07-11 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars it's rough, then smooth, then rough again

A nice long and challenging route. I found a crux about 15 feet up (after the rough rock gives out to smooth rock), then after that powered up to about 40 feet. Even though we top roped off the points listed in this climb, I ended up pretty much climbing the front face of the rock. I think the left side (as described) would have been much easier. If you end up on the front face, you'll find another crux about 45 feet up, where the rock is more or less pitched at a 5 degree angle, sheer, and with not a lot to grab onto. I would consider the route I ended up climbing (straight up the center) a 5.10. Much more sheer with less to grab on to than the kippered Devi.

4 out of 5 stars Good 5.7

Slight overhang at the beginning which could be considered the crux. An overall fun route.

Nice anchor bolts for top rope setup. Very pleasant route with challenging variations.

Was able to to onsight this, but it is top roping so hey. The holds are worn smooth throughout this climb, especially near the bottom where I found the crux to be. Typical Iowa climbing on dirty, insect infested limestone. No doubt I'll return, it was fun...
