3 out of 5 stars Lol

This route kinda sucks...but I think that's why I liked it:) The pro is weird the first 2/3 of the route. There are really chossy flakes that you have to avoid placing gear on top of, so you have to go really deep in this dingy crack. Then comes the offwidth. Yeah, do it!! lol it hurts and is pebbly. You only need one big piece for the offwidth (#6 Camalot) then a #1 slots really nicely right above that. Then comes the UNBELIEVABLE rope drag from the 35' traverse to the Bombs Bursting anchors (full of debris and huge rocks). Have fun:)

This is the hardest 5.7 I have ever climbed. There is a bail tree about 2/3 the way up to the big ledge, use it. The off width crack to the top is a 5.10@#$%. Take plenty of big cams for that section. Use Rap bolts for Bombs Bursting.
